DE Gym Teacher Charged With Indecent Exposure

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Appoquinimink High School officials say a gym teacher and head baseball coach is on administrative leave and barred from contact with students after an arrest on indecent exposure charges.
    
Police say 31-year-old Charles Word of Ogletown asked a woman walking in Newark on Sunday morning for directions, then exposed himself. The woman walked away, but police say he approached her a second time, then fled when she told him she was calling police.
    
Word was arrested and charged with second-degree indecent exposure and harassment. He was released on $4,000 bail.
    
Appoquinimink Principal Gayle Rutter wrote in an email to parents Monday that Word won't be allowed to be involved with school activities until the charges are properly investigated.
