WARREN COUNTY, Ohio -- Police arrested a Franklin City Schools teacher Tuesday on charges of sexual battery, according to the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

Madalyn S. Arnett, 25, of West Carrollton, was placed on paid administrative leave Tuesday, according to The Journal-News.

Arnett, a social studies teacher at Franklin High School, is accused of having inappropriate electronic communication with a student. 

Superintendent Michael Sander told The Journal-Newsthat administrators learned of the allegation after the school day on Monday. Sander said administrators met early Tuesday morning to conduct an initial investigation of the allegations, which prompted administrators to place Arnett on leave. Police arrested Arnett at about 9 p.m. Tuesday at her home. 

Arnett is being held at the Warren County Jail on a $25,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear in court for arraignment at noon on Friday. 

The situation remains under investigation.
