An Appoquinimink High School gym teacher teacher and head baseball coach is free on bail after being arrested for indecent exposure.

It happened early Sunday morning along South Chapel Street near Delaware Avenue.

A woman tells police she was walking when Charles Word of Newark allegedly pulled down his pants inside his car and asked her for directions.

Word fled in his car, but video surveillance helped police catch him at his home. He now faces charges of indecent exposure and harassment.

Appo has placed Word on administrative leave. He's not permitted to teach, coach, or be on school premises pending an investigation.

A note on the school's website, that was also sent to all parents via the emergency alert system, says the incident did not involve any Apoo students.
