Local high school teacher sexually assaulted in her classroom

CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee(WDEF) – A 19-year old is accused of sexually assaulting a female teacher inside her classroom.

The incident reportedly occurred last month inside Brainerd High School but WDEF just learned about it after Addison Foster, 19, of Chattanooga was arrested this week.

Foster was charged with one count of sexual battery.

According to the arrest report, the alleged crime occurred after school was let out.

Foster reportedly walked into the school and asked the teacher if he could see her classroom.

According to the arrest report, she took him to her classroom where Foster inappropriately touche the woman and reportedly started laughing.

"I’m sorry. I just had to do that," is the quote he reportedly told the teacher.

The woman told police she pushed him away and told him to leave. She reportedly told him to leave out the front door of the school but she said he refused and left out a side door.

The teacher reportedly alerted authorities about what happened and said she didn’t want to prosecute. But a warrant for sexual battery was taken out on Foster.

It’s unclear if he has an attorney.

It’s unclear if Foster is former Brainerd High School student or how he knew the alleged victim.

WDEF tried contacting Hamilton County School officials but no one was available for comment.
