A science teacher at Fairfield High School was arrested Thursday for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with an underage student.

Eric Hankins, 27, was put on administrative leave when the allegations surfaced earlier in December that he had inappropriate contact with the 14-year-old student, police said.

Hankins was arrested at his Fairfield home, and booked into jail on charges of lewd and lascivious behavior with a child 14 years or younger.
