CHARLESTON, SC (WYFF) -

A high school coach was arrested for DUI as she was transporting student athletes to a match in Charleston, according to Spartanburg District 7 officials.

District officials said Dedra Kiser, the girls' cross country coach from Spartanburg High, was driving seven athletes in a district vehicle to the Lowcountry for an invitation match.

According to the South Carolina Highway Patrol, Kiser was pulled over on I-26 in North Charleston on Friday. District officials said Kiser was pulled over for erratic driving; she was arrested and charged with DUI and reckless endangerment of children.

According to WYFF, the athletes were taken to the Charleston Police Department, and their parents had to drive there to pick them up.

District 7 released the following statement:

The safety of our children is always our first and foremost priority. Thankfully, our student athletes are all doing fine. We've worked closely with their parents and they have been as understanding as they can be. Our girls were placed in a potentially harmful situation and that is absolutely intolerable.

The employee in question has been relieved of her coaching duties and is on administrative leave while the situation is being investigated.
