HOUSTON, April 26 (UPI) -- A Houston middle school teacher was arrested and charged for allegedly sending inappropriate text and Facebook messages to students, police say.

Paul Roberts, a Stafford Middle School award-winning math teacher, was suspended Tuesday for "inappropriate electronic communication between a teacher and students," the school said.

He was arrested Tuesday and charged with improper relations with a student, a second-degree felony, KTRK-TV, Houston, reported. Superintendent Lace Hindt said the messages were brought to his attention by a parent who found them on her son's phone. The messages were suggestive and full of foul language. He allegedly had sent similar messages through Facebook as well.

The school district told KHOU-TV, Houston, there were at least two students who confirmed having received inappropriate messages from Roberts.

Roberts is being held in Fort Bend County Jail in lieu of a $7,500 bond. He had started teaching at Stafford last year.
