Second-grade teacher popped for DUI after rollover wreck

By: Andy Slater

A second-grade teacher went from the classroom to walking the line for police early Friday morning.

State troopers responded to a crash northbound on Florida's Turnpike just south of Miramar Parkway involving an overturned dump truck and a white BMW.

When police arrived, they went to speak to the driver of the BMW, Ilana Muransky.

Troopers observed that Muransky, 26, smelled of alcohol, had watery eyes and slurred speech. According to the exclusively-obtained police report, Muransky told a trooper that she had one drink.

She was given roadside DUI exercises and failed, the arrest affidavit said. Muransky asked to do it again, but the trooper said no and arrested her. She refused to take a breathalyzer test.

Muransky is a teacher at Embassy Creek Elementary School in Cooper City. The school was recently given an "A" rating. 

A spokesperson for Broward County Public Schools said Muransky has been working at the school since 2014. 

"Her current status is not affected. The District's policy is that she self-reports the final judgment. Any disciplinary action would be based on a review of all documentation and information related to a criminal offense," the spokesperson said.

Muransky is facing one charge of DUI.
