Ocean County’s opioid epidemic literally has landed on the desk of an Eagleswood elementary school teacher who faces charges that he snorted morphine in class in front of students and another faculty member, prosecutors say.

According to a Dec. 3 complaint by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, Michael Palladino, a 43-year-old teacher at Eagleswood Township Elementary School, is charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, a third-degree crime, and official misconduct, a more serious second-degree offense alleging Palladino used his public position for his personal benefit.
