A history teacher has been suspended after disturbing footage emerged online of him rubbing a students waist and back.
In the video, the teacher who has been identified as Travis Holland can be seen rubbing his hand up and down the back of a teenage girl in a classroom at Eagerville High School.
According to the Mirror, Rutherford County School District suspended Holland without pay on Wednesday after the footage came to light.
A statement from the school read,
“We were notified yesterday of the video and did an initial review, but then deferred to law enforcement and DCS for their review.
“We have now heard back from both agencies and they are not pursuing any further investigation.
“However, the school district has suspended the employee without pay pending the outcome of a district investigation.”
A concerned parent also revealed that numerous kids have previously filed complaints against Holland, citing instances of inappropriate touching.
Holland has yet to comment on the investigation.
