For the third time in about a month -- and for the second time in about two hours -- we've gotten a report about a Tucson high school teacher arrested for allegedly having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student.

This time, however, the alleged perp is a dude, and the person who turned him in was his wife.

Police arrested 30-year-old Aaron Montoya this morning after they say they got a call from his wife claiming he may be having an inappropriate relationship with a student.

Officers responded to the call and learned that Montoya, a teacher at All Sports Academy, had been having a sexual relationship with the student for several months.

Earlier today, police arrested another teacher at Tucson high school for allegedly sending inappropriate photos of herself to a 16-year-old, male student. The photos, police say, were discovered by the student's father, who called police.

Last month, another female high school teacher in Tucson -- who also happened to be a cheerleading coach -- was arrested after the victim's parents found inappropriate text messaged on their son's cell phone.

Three teachers in less than a month? Seriously?

If you're a Tucson high school student looking to start an "inappropriate relationship" with your teacher, you gotta like your odds.
