SANDUSKY, OH - A longtime teacher from Ohio was fired after an investigation concluded she slept in class and repeatedly arrived late.

Carol Smith was recommended for firing by a referee who said her actions were "totally unprofessional" and threatened the safety of her middle and high school students.

Students had testified class was "unruly" when Smith was late and that they played computer games when she slept.

Smith said she was late a handful of times and denied falling asleep.

She testified a condition required her to rest her eyes.
