A female teacher at a Tucson high school was arrested this morning for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old male student.

As has often been the case with similar, hot-for-teacher type stories and the dirty minds of Valley Fever readers, you probably want to see her mug shot.

Well, you're in luck -- we got it and you can check it out after the jump (the one on this page isn't her, of course).

Tucson police say 32-year-old Jennifer Whiting, an English teacher at the Tucson Rincon High School, sent inappropriate photos to the student and was actually in the process of going to meet him when she was arrested this morning.

In order to go meet him, Whiting left her two minor children sitting at home, police say.

Police were alerted to the relationship by the boy's father, who apparently wasn't too thrilled that a teacher at his son's school was sending the boy racy photos of herself.

Whiting was booked into Pima County Jail on one count of furnishing harmful items to a minor.
