— A former coach at Porter Consolidated Schools was arrested Friday in Wagoner County for allegedly showing a student a photo of his penis, a media release states.

Johnny Lynn Scott, 37, of Tahlequah was arrested on charges of performing a lewd act in the presence of a minor and lewd molestation. He is being held at the Wagoner County Jail on $50,000 bond.

The Wagoner County Sheriff's Office began their investigation when they were called to Porter Schools in October.

According to court documents, Scott is accused of making a 14-year-old student look at a picture on his cellphone of his erect penis.

The court documents state he handed the student his phone “for specific use of the camera function that he knew contained photos of his penis, and further knew would display the last photo taken.” Scott “selected the camera application and the photo of his erect penis before presenting the phone to the victim,” which forced her to look at the photo.

Scott also is accused of touching the buttocks of the girl “on a daily basis.”

According to the Porter Consolidated Schools website, Scott was a junior high and high school computer science teacher.

A court date has not been set.
