A Metro Nashville school teacher was arrested over the weekend on a meth charge.
Stephen Curtis Henry, 55, who lives in Springfield, was arrested by Robertson County deputies.
A police report obtained by News 2 shows Henry was found at a vacant home he co-owns with family members. He was reportedly in possession of three grams of methamphetamine.
He allegedly admitted to police to being an intermittent methamphetamine user.
Henry was charged with felony possession of a schedule II drug. He was also given a citation for possession of drug paraphernalia.
In addition to the meth, police found a large glass water pipe and four unused hypodermic needles.
A spokeswoman for Metro schools says Henry is an Alternative Learning Teacher at Johnson Alternative Learning Center. He took the assignment in September 2015, but has worked for the school system for more than 30 years.
Henry is the former president of the Metro Nashville Education Association, a union for teachers.
In a statement to News 2, MNPS said, “Because it is summer break, no action is required by human resources. At the appropriate time, MNPS Human Resources will determine further action.”
Henry is scheduled for a court day on Tuesday, June 19.
