A Metro Nashville Public Schools teacher has been arrested in Robertson County on a meth charge.

Stephen Curtis Henry, a teacher at Johnson Alternative Learning Center, is jailed on a charge of manufacturing/delivery/sale/possession of meth.

Online records show Henry was arrested on June 10. He’s being held on a $10,000 bond.

MNPS says Henry has been a teacher for more than 30 years.

"MNPS is closely monitoring the details surrounding Stephen Henry’s legal status. He has been employed by MNPS since Feb. 3, 1987. He is an Alternative Learning Teacher at Johnson ALC, a role he assumed on Sept. 11, 2017. Because it is summer break, no action is required by human resources. At the appropriate time, MNPS Human Resources will determine further action."

Henry’s first court appearance is set for August 13.

In April, a large fight at Johnson Alternative Learning Center landed 14 students in handcuffs.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
