A high school band director in Louisiana has been arrested after authorities say he was found hiding in a 16-year-old girl's closet, reports the AP. Jeremy Conner, 30, was charged Wednesday with indecent behavior with a juvenile. Ascension Parish Sheriff's Lt. Col. Bobby Webre said detectives began investigating the incident and learned that Conner had been communicating with the girl since last year. He says Conner admitted sending inappropriate text messages to the teenager. Conner is listed on Westgate High School's website as the band instructor. Iberia Parish Schools Superintendent Dale Henderson said in a statement that Conner is currently absent without leave. More charges are possible. (More Louisiana stories.)
