Police: High school teacher wrote inappropriate love note to student


Central High School art teacher Christopher Matthews, 43, was arrested Friday and charged with harassment after Phenix City police say he gave a female student an inappropriate love letter.

The girl's parents filed a complaint with the school, afterwards the school contacted police, and then the parents signed a warrant for Matthews' arrest.

Police said in the letter Matthews did not speak in a sexual manner, but was mostly indicating he wanted a relationship with the young girl.

The Phenix City superintendent tells News Leader 9 Christopher Matthews worked at the school for seven years and Matthews resigned before his arrest Friday. 

He was granted a $500 bond and bailed out of the Russell County Jail.
