A high school teacher has been fired after allegedly having a sexual relationship with one of her 15-year-old students.
Christie David, 32, of Cleveland, Tenn. was indicted by a grand jury and arrested on Tuesday, according to the Times Free Press.
Details of the relationship were not released by authorities, but the Cleveland Daily Banner reports that David was fired from her job as a language arts teacher at Walker Valley High School after she was arrested on a charge of sexual battery by an authority figure.
The Daily Mail reports that police started investigating David after receiving a tip in late September. David is married and, in addition to her job at Walker Valley High, she also reportedly taught a spin class at her local YMCA.
When the Daily Mail placed a call to the YMCA, the person who answered seemed startled by the accusations.
“Are you sure you are asking for the right person?” she said. “That doesn’t sound like the Christie David I know.”
David started working at Walker Valley High in October 2011.
