CENTRAL, La. (WAFB) - A former teacher at a school in Central has resigned after being arrested and charged with Peeping Tom, a source close to the situation says.

Forrest Friedman was booked into the Livingston Parish Jail Thursday, Nov. 5. He’s charged in connection with an alleged Peeping Tom incident that reportedly happened Oct. 29.

Superintendent Jason Fountain says Friedman was a teacher at Central Middle School, but abruptly resigned Wednesday, Nov. 4.

Friedman started at Central Middle in August of 2019, the superintendent says. The investigation continues.

A family member of Friedman has contacted WAFB and denied the allegations.
