LODGE GRASS — Patricia Real Bird, a teacher and girls basketball coach in the Lodge Grass school district, was arrested Wednesday amid allegations of drinking alcohol while on the job, according to school officials.

Real Bird could face charges of child endangerment. The BIA is investigating, but it was unclear Thursday if charges had been filed.

Real Bird was in custody Thursday at Rocky Mountain Detention Facility in Hardin.

Real Bird recently took over as the girls varsity coach after starring as a player for Lodge Grass in the early 1990s.
