PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – A southwest Florida woman was arrested after a police officer saw her snorting cocaine off her iPhone in a school parent pickup line, police said.

Christina Hester, 39, was booked into a Lee County jail Tuesday on drug charges.

According to a police report, a school resource officer at Lexington Middle School in Fort Myers saw Hester using a straw to snort cocaine off her iPhone.

Police said the officer asked Hester to go inside the school, where he found cocaine in her purse.

Parents told ABC affiliate WZVN that they were disturbed to learn of the arrest.

"She's responsible for other people's lives and she's driving a car where my kids are walking and other kids," Lexington Middle School parent Katie Lindsay told WZVN.

Hester was released from jail on a $6,500 bond.
