Chesterfield teacher arrested on field trip

Posted by Colby Rogers - email

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A letter sent home from Chesterfield County Public Schools Saturday says that a teacher-chaperone was arrested while on an overnight field trip in Norfolk last week.

The letter sent home to parents says the teacher-chaperone was asked to leave the Model U.N. event that was being held in Norfolk following the arrest.

The school administration says the teacher will not be returning to the classroom, pending completion of an investigation.

Officials have not yet released the name of the teacher-chaperone or any charges against them.
