Ardmore PE teacher arrested

By  | 

ARDMORE, OK -- Officers took an Ardmore City Schools teacher into custody Thursday night.

38-year-old Derek Saxon teaches physical education at Charles Evans Elementary and was arrested on a district charge of actual physical control.

Ardmore police say that means he was intoxicated inside of his pickup truck, but not driving.

In 2009 we reported Saxon faced drunk driving charges.

Superintendent Sonny Bates says Saxon is still an employee at the school and the district is in the process of gathering facts, and consulting with their attorneys.

The Carter County court clerk says Saxon has bonded out of jail..

He's due back in court July 7th.
