OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Police say an Oklahoma City teacher has been arrested on complaints of indecent exposure in connection to inappropriate texts sent to a student.

Master Sgt. Gary Knight said Tuesday that the 51-year-old teacher at Douglass Mid-High School sent texts to the student with videos of her exposing herself.

Oklahoma City Public Schools spokesman Mark Myers said that school administrators were made aware Monday about the allegations. Myers said police were notified and an internal investigation was launched.

The teacher, who officials say has been employed by the school district since 2008, has been placed on paid leave pending the outcome of the internal investigation.
