Tulsa Police arrested a Monroe Middle School teacher after a 15-year-old former student told police the teacher grabbed his backside. Prosecutors charged Rodney Flud with lewd molestation.

Officers say a group of students at a convenience store during the fair, said Flud made a lewd gesture to them, before grabbing the boy. They said he was acting intoxicated.

Here’s an interesting twist, Flud is the science teacher who refused to press charges against some of his students last April after the students put poison in his coffee cup. The students did so after he sent them to detention for swearing.
