Maryland teacher arrested for illicitly filming exchange student
POTOMAC, Md. (WJLA/AP) - A physical education teacher at a private school in Potomac has been charged with making illicit videos of a foreign exchange student who was living with him and his family.
Montgomery County police say 39-year-old Darrien Tucker was arrested on Tuesday after the 18-year-old student went to police with videos she had made that police say show Tucker trying to record her in the bathroom.
The woman told police that she saw an Apple iPad being slid under the bathroom door as she was showering.
Police say Tucker admitted videotaping the woman.
Tucker teaches physical education at the McLean School of Maryland.
Elizabeth Shannon, speaking on behalf of McLean School, responded to Tucker's arrest by saying:
"While employed at McLean, the school received no complaints of misconduct of this nature against the employee. The School conducts a careful and complete vetting of all individuals applying for employment. The employee passed the comprehensive vetting process prior to being hired by the school."
No attorney for Tucker was listed in online court records, and a message left at the home listed for him in court records was not immediately returned.
