If you pass out face down on your desk in your high school art class and get arrested for being high on heroin, there’s really only one thing you can say for yourself: “Roll Tide.”
Two weeks ago, coffee wasn’t enough to get through long days of awful high school students, so 26-year-old Pittsburgh-area high school art teacher Christopher Chiappetta went the needle drugs route instead. After being found passed out at his desk in class, police say he confessed to arriving at school doped up on H.
Hate teaching high school art? Roll Tide.
Pass out at your desk in your own class? Roll Tide.
Get arrested for shooting up before school? Roll. Damn. Tide.
While Chiappetta, whose name is unfortunately not pronounced anything like Chia Pet, will probably only face probation and rehab for charges of drug possession, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct, his explanation to the media for his actions as he was being lead to a van in handcuffs will live through the ages.
After all, “Roll Tide” can pretty much mean anything and what better explanation does Chiappetta have at this point?
