A student in the first full week of class at Calhoun Middle School told police on Wednesday afternoon she was inappropriately touched by a teacher at the school that morning, according to a police report.
Denton ISD spokeswoman Julie Zwahr wrote in an email Thursday that the teacher was put on leave while authorities investigate the claims. She did not answer additional questions about the case.
Denton police said investigators were assigned to the case but had not talked to the teacher or the victim by Thursday afternoon.
The assault-by-contact case was reported to police just after 2 p.m. Wednesday.
Police declined to say more about the alleged assault.
2800 block of East University Drive — Denton police found a parked vehicle with its hazard lights blinking and looked in the vehicle to find a handgun, marijuana and a scale, according to a police report.
The vehicle was towed. Police did not get in contact with a driver, a police spokeswoman said Thursday.
7500 block of Teasley Lane — A Guyer High School student’s vape pen was confiscated on Wednesday and turned over to Denton police, who said authorities would test it to see if the pen contained THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the active chemical in marijuana), according to a police report.
The substance in the pens is considered a controlled substance and therefore a felony offense for possessing it.
