Teacher charged with videotaping exchange student


POTOMAC, Md. (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 told police that she saw an Apple iPad being slid under the bathroom door as she was showering. Police say Tucker admitted to videotaping the woman.

Tucker teaches physical education at the McLean School of Maryland. The school says he's been placed on a leave of absence and ordered to stay away from campus and students.

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.
