A high school English teacher was arrested after she was found half-naked in a car with a nude male student, police said.
Laura Michelle Lozano faces a charge of indecency with a child by exposure and is free on bail from the Webb County Jail in Texas, mySA.com reported.
Laredo Police Department officers answering a Monday night call about a suspicious vehicle discovered the 46-year-old woman in a white SUV, naked from the waist down, according to Investigator Joe Baeza, the news site said.
Lozano initially said she was alone in the car, but an officer noticed a naked male lying in the backseat, police said. He was 16 and a student at Cigarroa High School, where Lozano teaches English, authorities said.
The teacher has been suspended with pay pending the criminal investigation, according to a statement from the Laredo Independent School District.
Administrators are working with police and children’s services officials, the district said.
The student was not identified because of his age.
It was unclear whether Lozano had entered a plea.
