The Tucson Police Department says a 22-year-old high school teacher's aide was involved in a sexual "incident" involving six male students.

We'd love to tell you exactly what happened, but the cops were first to discover the video of the incident, filmed by one of the six students involved.

According to Tucson PD, a Tucson cop was tipped off yesterday that a teacher's aide "had sexual contact with multiple students."

That teacher's aide was identified as 22-year-old Clarice Lee.

Detectives investigated the case, and found out the Friday incident it involved Lee and six male students, between the ages of 16 and 18.

During the lunch period on Friday, Lee and the six students went to an undisclosed location on campus, and made "sexual contact" with two 18-year-old students, and had sexual intercourse with a 16-year-old student.

The three other students -- including the cellphone cameraman -- were just watching.

Lee's a teacher's aide for special-needs children, according to Tucson PD, and has had that job since August.

She was booked into the Pima County Jail on four counts of sexual misconduct with a minor.
