CHELSEA — A Chelsea High School history teacher and volleyball coach has been arrested and charged with having sexual contact with a student.


Donald Carey Teague, 57, is being held in the Shelby County Jail on $30,000 bond. Teague was booked into the jail May 15 on a charge of a school employee having sexual contact with a student under the age of 19.

Teague has been placed on leave as the investigation is ongoing, said Shelby County Schools spokeswoman Cindy Warner, who issued the following statement May 15 after Teague’s arrest: “The Shelby County Schools District always takes these types of situations seriously.  The school district took immediate action when these allegations were brought to our attention and began a thorough investigation.  Because the investigation is still ongoing, we are not at liberty to discuss the case.  However, we are cooperating with the Sheriff’s Department in this investigation.”
