Howard County law enforcement officers arrested a local teacher in early January, charging him with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. It’s the second time in four years for the social studies teacher, Christian Callender. Howard County Police say Callender was involved in a single vehicle crash at approximately 7:45 in the morning on January 5, as he was headed to Glenelg High School. Callender was apparently late for classes, which started at 7:20 a.m.
According to police records, Callender was the only party in a crash at the traffic circle at the intersection of Ten Oaks and Brighton Dam roads. Callender, who has taught in the Howard County schools for 15 years, is currently on administrative leave from Glenelg High. Court records indicate he was convicted of drunk driving in 2012 after he was pulled over for speeding.
