LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The Clark County School District Police Department arrested a teacher for failing to appear in court and drug charges, in connection to a battery of a student.

A court order was issued after 42-year-old Evan Scutero failed to appear at court for the 2017 battery charge, CCSD Police said. He was "briefly assigned to Evelyn Stuckey Elementary School as a physical education teacher in Oct. 2017."

Scutero's charges include a misdemeanor count for failure to appear, a felony count for possession of a controlled substance and a misdemeanor count for possession of narcotics paraphernalia, police said.

According to the arrest report, at the time Scutero was put under arrest, police found a small, plastic bag containing "a crystal like substance" in his front pocket that officers assumed to be methamphetamine. Police also found a glass smoking pipe that had residue commonly used to smoke methamphetamine. Initial tests came back positive for the drug, the arrest report said. 

Scutero was originally hired by CCSD in Aug. 2005. His employment status Wednesday was considered as "assigned to home," CCSD Police said.
