A Philadelphia nun and Catholic school teacher was placed on administrative leave by the archdiocese Wednesday after images surfaced of her failing a sobriety test.
Sister Kimberly Miller, IHM, is a faculty member at Little Flower High School for Girls in Philadelphia. On Nov. 7, Miller was allegedly driving a Ford F150 pickup truck around 3 a.m. when the truck backed into a Meineke Auto Shop in Turnersville, New Jersey, smashing the shop's front door.
Police stopped the pickup a short distance away. A passerby captured video as an officer led the nun through a field sobriety test. Miller was later charged with driving under the influence.
Sister Kimberly, a beloved teacher at Little Flower, leads a popular literary festival at the school.
Archdiocese spokesman Kenneth A. Gavin offered few details about the disciplinary action.
