Cocaine charges for Md. teacher

A Silver Spring high school teacher was arrested and charged with cocaine possession in Dewey Beach, Del., on Saturday, police said.

Daren Dembrow, 49, was standing on a street corner when a patrol officer saw him pull a cocaine baggie and a blue straw from his pocket and take a snort, said Sgt. Cliff Dempsey, a spokesman for the Dewey Beach Police Department.

Reached by phone, Dembrow declined to comment.

School officials have placed Dembrow, who teaches science at Springbrook High School, on administrative leave while the incident is investigated, said Montgomery schools spokesman Dana Tofig.

Dembrow has worked for the schools system since August 2007.

I have no doubt he is a NEA member with tenure and won't get fired.
