NEW ROADS, Louisiana — Authorities say a private school biology teacher accused of having a sexual encounter with a 16-year-old student has been arrested.
Capt. Steve Juge, a Pointe Coupee Sheriff's Office spokesman, tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1qS5nex ) 27-year-old Nick Domingue (doh-MANG'), of Ventress, surrendered Friday and was booked into Pointe Coupee Parish Detention Center on counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile and oral sexual battery.
Principal Melanie Ezell says Domingue had been teaching a total of about 75 students in his second year at False River Academy when the allegations surfaced about a week ago.
Ezell said Domingue has since been fired.
Authorities have not release further details of the accusations.
It was unclear whether Domingue has an attorney.
