CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. - A Clayton County teacher has been fired, arrested and charged for allegedly having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a student.
 

Science teacher Robert Arrington worked at Charles R. Drew high school. The 30-year-old was arrested for having an alleged relationship with a 17-year-old student, according to police.
 
“A teacher is a teacher that should be teaching us, not having relationships with students,” said student Jacqueline Corral.
 
Police said Arrington was arrested and charged with one count of sexual assault, sexual exploitation of children and one count of weapons on the school ground.
 
Police said during a search of his car, they found a handgun.
 
Student Robert Vrbic said the arrest surprised him.
 
"I was honestly shocked, surprised,” said Vrbic. “It’s something I would never expect, not from this school."
 
Police are looking to see is any other students were involved.
