Anthony Durrant, a former social studies teacher at J.T. Alton Middle School, was arrested Wednesday by Radcliff Police Department, according to John Wright, community relations director for Hardin County Schools.

Durrant was fired Tuesday from HCS after he was accused of inappropriate communications with a student. The allegations were brought to the district's attention Monday by an adult and Durrant was asked to leave the school that day. He received his official notification of termination Tuesday.

Wright didn't elaborate on the specific charges that Durrant faces. Further information will be available in Thursday's print edition of The News-Enterprise.
