RICHARDSON (CBSDFW.COM) – The Richardson School District has put one of its associate band directors on leave after he was arrested on a public indecency charge.
The problems for David Anderson began around 6:45 Saturday morning. That’s when several businessmen, at a strip mall, claim they saw the 38-year-old performing a lewd act.
“A couple of individuals, inside of a business, looked out and observed an individual sexually gratifying himself inside of a pickup truck,” explained Richardson PD Public Information Officer Kevin Perlich.
Perlich says Anderson did not appear drunk or under the influence at the time of his arrest.
Richardson ISD Spokesman Tim Clark says upon learning of the arrest officials took action. “From this point forward the district is going to be gathering facts, related to the allegations, and we don’t have a timetable to make a further decision,” he said.
Both police and the school district are quick to point out the accusation does not involve anyone else.
“There’s no indication that the allegations against him involved a student, a child, or a minor in any way,” said Clark.
According to Clark, Anderson has been with the district for about two years and primarily worked with the Richardson High School Band.
Anderson apparently also did other work throughout the Richardson ISD. “I think, through a program we have they also, all of our band directors and assistant band directors, work with younger students in the junior highs as well,” said Clark.
Anderson is charged with indecent exposure, a Class B Misdemeanor, and is free on bond.
