CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) – A Tennessee schoolteacher has been arrested on charges of aggravated kidnapping and rape. The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office says 23-year-old Kadarius Scott was charged in connection with an alleged incident in Ooltewah, not on school property.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports Scott was suspended from his job as a Bible history teacher at Tyner Middle Academy, pending an investigation. The newspaper reports the school’s website said he also was the head baseball and cross-country coach before his suspension. A complaint affidavit said the accusation followed a visit by Scott to a woman’s home for dinner.
