TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A teacher at Cholla High School in Tucson has been arrested on suspicion of felony sexual abuse involving a 15-year-old female student.

Tucson police say 48-year-old Eddie Rodriquez allegedly made sexual contact with the girl on Oct. 17.

She reported the contact to school authorities, who then contacted authorities.

Police say Rodriguez was arrested Wednesday.

It was unclear Friday if he has a lawyer yet for his case.

Tucson Unified School District officials say Rodriguez has been placed on administrative leave with pay.
