A former Porter High School teacher and coach was arrested by the Wagoner County Sheriff’s office on Friday night.

Johnny Scott is accused of Performing a Lewd Act in presence of Minor and Lewd Molestation. Scott is being held on $50,000 dollars bond at the Wagoner County Jail.

FOX23 spoke exclusively with Wagoner County Sheriff Bob Colbert after the arrest. Colbert told FOX23 that the Sheriff’s Office began investigating the incident when they were called to Porter Schools on October 31st, 2013 on allegations of wrong doings by a coach.

“My hats off to the Porter School system because they didn’t mess around with this,” said Colbert.

Colbert said that when authorities were contacted they began digging into what may have happened. Authorities interviewed witnesses and served warrants for cell phones.

“He’s charged with lewd molestation and basically showing pictures of his self, to a minor child,” said Colbert.

Arraignment will be held on Monday.
