Posted: Updated:

A first-grade teacher charged with drunken driving after her car struck a 15-year-old boy at a bus stop was ordered to be held on $250,000 bail Wednesday.

Noel Lynn Lardeo has been in jail since her arrest just after 5 a.m. Sunday on Spring Mountain Road west of El Camino Road.

She faces additional charges of driving without a license and having an open container in a vehicle.

According to an arrest report, two containers of vodka were found in Lardeo's 2005 Acura.

Lardeo -- who teaches at Roger M. Bryan Elementary School -- failed a sobriety test, police said, and claimed she was the designated driver giving her roommate a ride home.

The teen struck by Lardeo's car was rushed to a hospital in critical condition. Police later told FOX5 one of the boy's legs was amputated.

Lardeo is due back in court Friday.
