TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Police say a dance teacher at a Tucson high school has been arrested on suspicion of sexual conduct with a minor.

Tucson police say they're investigating whether 28-year-old Charlie Luna engaged in inappropriate relationships with other underage girls.

The Arizona Daily Star says an administrator from another school contacted police after learning of an alleged relationship between Luna and a then 14-year-old girl.

Police say Luna and the girl knew each other through a dance studio where she takes classes.

Luna was an independent contractor working as an instructor at Sahuaro High School.

The Tucson Unified School District says the teenage girl isn't a district student.

Police say Luna was booked into Pima County Jail on Nov. 27. They didn't immediately provide information on whether Luna has a lawyer.

Statement by Tucson Unified School District

An independent contractor who was working as a dance instructor at Sahuaro High School was arrested by Tucson Police last week for alleged sexual conduct with a minor. The arrest of Charlie Luna was made in conjunction with an investigation conducted by the Tucson Police Department and occurred off campus. Tucson Police has informed TUSD that the minor in the investigation is not a TUSD student. The police investigation is ongoing and TUSD can offer no further comment at this time.
