Delaware gym teacher charged with exposing genitals
A Delaware gym teacher and coach is suspended from his job following his arrest on the charge of indecent exposure over the weekend.
The principal at Appoquinimink High School sent an email to students’ parents Monday informing them Charles Word, 31, won’t be able to come on school grounds or attend activities involving students following his arrest in Newark on Sunday, NBC10 reports.
Word, of Ogletown, Del., allegedly exposed his genitals to a woman he had called over to ask for directions Sunday morning. He reportedly followed the woman in his car, but ran from the area when the woman threatened to call police.
Word was arrested later at his home on the charges of indecent exposure and harassment.
Word coaches the New Castle County school’s baseball team, according to NBC10.
