A North Carolina teacher accused of having sex with a student has violated her bail conditions after boozing in her car with two juveniles, according to cops.
Elizabeth Bailey, 37, was hauled in by police after she was involved in a car crash on Mocksville Highway in Statesville on Saturday.
Two kids who were with the fired high school teacher ran off before cops arrived, according to Iredell County Sheriff’s Office.

Bailey was in the front passenger seat and admitted she had been drinking. She had allowed one of the juveniles to drive the car without a license, the citation obtained by Fox said.
The science teacher was ordered by the court to stay away from the student with whom she allegedly had a relationship as part of her pre-trial release deal.
Bailey was detained on a charge of violating pretrial release, and highway patrol cited her for misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor and another misdemeanor charge of allowing an unlicensed driver to drive.
The two juveniles who fled the scene were later tracked down by cops. One of them was taken into custody over an outstanding Juvenile Secure Custody Order.
Bailey was released without having to post additional bond, despite breaching her bail conditions over her relationship with the student who is under 16.
‘Our agency was made aware that District Court Judge Christine Underwood amended the bond to strike the $750,000 bond issued by the magistrate,’ the sheriff’s office said in a statement.

‘Bailey is to remain under a posted bond from October 2022 … This investigation is ongoing, and additional charges may follow.’
She worked at Northview Academy in Statesville until she was suspended last year before resigning in October.
In total Bailey faces 24 charges, including felony statutory rape of a child 15 or younger and felony intimidating or interfering with a state’s witness.
Bailey was initially given a $750,000 bond but this was later reduced to $50,000.
