SALTILLO, Miss (WTVA) -- A Saltillo High School choir director has been charged with DUI and driving with an expired license .

Linda Price, according to social media, is the choral director at Saltillo High School

She has worked for the Lee County School District for over 20 years.

Parents in Saltillo are shocked by the news that she was arrested Thursday night.

"Well they are supposed to be good role models and steer them in the right direction," Austin Harris said.

"I really don't see how that's influencing our young people when they are supposed to be role models for them.our younger generation needs somebody to look up to and the teachers it starts with them too. We send them to Head Start and they're with them all day. They're the biggest influence besides the parents in their lives," Erica Armstrong said.

Price was listed in jail on $1600 bond for driving under the Influence and with an expired drivers license are misdemeanor charges.

Details about her arrest were not available.

WTVA spoke Friday afternoon with district superintendent Jimmy Weeks who says because its a personnel matter he cannot make a comment.

Price was seen Friday afternoon at Saltillo High School directing the school's choir during a Veterans Day program.
