A teacher at Harper Junior High School in Davis is accused of sexual battery.

An arrest warrant was issued Friday for John O'Brien, according to the Davis Joint Unified School District.

"To the best of our knowledge, the alleged events that led to the warrant for Mr. O'Brien's arrest did not occur on a school campus," District Superintendent Winfred Roberson said.

School Board Vice President Tim Taylor says O'Brien is on unpaid leave, and the process is underway to fire him.
