A former Arlington Heights High School teacher has been charged with indecency and fondling of a female student.
Chad Hawkins, 34, turned himself into authorities on Tuesday and is in jail under a $15,000 bond.
According to a Tarrant County affidavit, a Westworth Village police officer was patrolling for vehicle break-ins in the parking lot of a L.A. Fitness, when he saw Hawkins and a female in a vehicle with "steamed up" windows on January 16, 2013.
The female identified herself as a student in Hawkins' history class to police and said that Hawkins was giving her a ride home.
The student said Hawkins touched and kissed her breasts and that she touched his penis.
A warrant for Hawkins' arrest was issued on January 18, 2013.
Hawkins resigned from Fort Worth ISD after the Jan. 16 incident, according to Fort Worth ISD spokesperson Clint Bond.
