GILBERT, Ariz. -

Authorities say a Gilbert teacher is in custody for allegedly having sex with a 17-year-old girl who was one of his students.
 
Gilbert police say 29-year-old Andrew James Teaters is being held on suspicion of three counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one count of sexual abuse.
 
Police say he was arrested Thursday at his home in Mesa.
 
Court documents show Teaters teaches 6th grade at Gilbert Early College and has been at the school for more than five years.
 
Police say Teaters told them that he got romantically involved with one of his students in April and May and had sex with the girl on school grounds.
 
Authorities didn't immediately know Friday if Teaters had an attorney yet.
