TUNICA, Miss. - Authorities say a vocational teacher at Rosa Fort High School in Tunica has been arrested on charges of fondling a student.

The Commercial Appeal reports 55-year-old Melvin Glass of Hernando was charged with sexual battery Thursday for an incident that was reported Dec. 19.

The complaint was filed by the mother of a student who came to the school in December, and the complaint alleged that Glass fondled the woman's child during school hours.

After appearing in Tunica County Justice Court for a probable cause hearing Thursday, a judge gave the sheriff's department permission to arrest Glass.

His case is set to go before the grand jury in August.

It couldn't be determined if Glass had an attorney.
