FRIENDSWOOD, Texas (AP) - — Police say a veteran Southeast Texas teacher and volleyball coach has been accused of selling steroids and cocaine.
Friendswood police Chief Bob Wieners says there's a possibility that some of the customers were students.
Timothy Todd Porter of League City is jailed on charges of delivery of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance. Authorities say oral steroids were confiscated Wednesday
when the 45-year-old Clear Springs High School educator was arrested at his home.
Bond was set at $10,000. Friendswood jail officials Thursday did not have any information on an attorney for Porter. A district spokeswoman says Porter, who taught physics and astronomy, has been suspended. He's been with the district for 22 years.
Two other men also have been arrested in the drug trafficking investigation.
