Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A TEACHER has been ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of in­ap­pro­pri­ate con­duct with a teenage stu­dent.

The Sacra­mento Po­lice Depart­ment said Re­bekah Cyr, 33, was taken into cus­tody af­ter al­le­ga­tions sur­faced that she tried to se­duce a 17-year-old boy.

“You don’t ex­pect that to hap­pen from a teacher,” par­ent Ruth Ignon said.

Cyr was booked at the Sacra­mento County Jail, Cal­i­for­nia on charges of an­noy­ing or mo­lest­ing a child and mak­ing an­noy­ing phone calls, po­lice said.

A probe be­gan last month and find­ings were sent to the Sacra­mento County Dis­trict At­tor­ney’s Of­fice.

Cyr was a drama teacher at In­derkum High School but there is no word yet on whether she has left her job.
