For anyone out there who may think otherwise, substitute teaching at an elementary school is not a good way to meet chicks.

Be that as it may, a substitute teacher at a Yuma elementary school is behind bars after police say he inappropriately touched a female student during class.

David Remmy, 58, was filling in for a teacher at the O.C. Johnson elementary school in Yuma on Friday when police say he inappropriately touched a girl in his class.

Calls to the Yuma Police Department to find out what they mean by "inappropriately touched" were not immediately returned.

According to authorities, several students in the class reported the incident to school staff, who called police.

Remmy was arrested yesterday on one count of sexual abuse.

Yuma police think there may possibly be more victims and ask anyone with information to call the YPD's Investigations Bureau at 928-783-4421, or 928-78-CRIME if you with to remain anonymous.
