MUS history teacher arrested, charged with drug possession
By Chris Conley
April 17, 2007

A history teacher at the prestigious Memphis University School was arrested and charged with possessing more than half an ounce of cocaine over the weekend.
Ernest Amsler, 50, was also charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Memphis Police were called to Amsler\'s apartment at 427 Graham # 7 about 1 p.m. Saturday afternoon in response to an argument involving his former girlfriend, according to the charges.
When police went inside, they found the former girlfriend, Tamara Moore, in one of the bedrooms.

A silver spoon with what appeared to be cocaine was lying on the bed, according to reports.

Moore showed the police three medicine bottles in a drawer that contained just over 16 grams of cocaine and 11 grams of marijuana, and police said Amsler told them they were his.

Amsler has been a teacher at the school since 1983, according to the MUS Web site. School officials there could not be reached for comment Monday night.

this man kept me from seeing the exploited at the antenna. damn, coach amsler. i always knew something was different about him.
i spent alot of time around him when i was 13-14. he was an eighth grade history teacher as well as the eighth grade basketball coach.

anyhow, the exploited were playing the antenna in jan or feb of '88. but there was a basketball game that nite and he told me that if i missed it to go the show i would face SERIOUS disciplinary action. so my friends went (somehow got in) and i handed sweat towels to jocks. not very punk.

at that time he would have been thirty. he drove an electric blue nissan pulsar NX. weird. but it kinda makes sense.

That car choice completely makes sense. As does an ex-girlfriend named "Tamara".

Google "Coach Amsler MUS". The first document, view as HTML and scroll down til you see an article titled "Amsler Smacks Down." Pretty great.

Well, you know what they say about most of your girlfriends: You don't have to look at the mantle while you're poking the fire!!

speaking of fire(places) and silver spoons...I have a vague but funny memory of a sign that used to hang behind the counter at Wizards that went something to the tune of...


I think it also said something about being asked to leave if you did say coke spoon.

I wonder if the alternative "My coke nail is busted. You guys have any legal paraphenalia I can put some coke in..?" would also get me booted from Wizrrds.
