A Walker County teacher was arrested over the weekend for aggravated assault.

According to the arrest report, 48-year-old Robert Samuel Forester was arrested on September 2, following an incident on Oak Hill Drive.

The report says Forester choked the victim. 

Forester is a long-time science teacher and coach at Lafayette High School.

Forester bonded out of jail on Monday. 

Walker County school officials are calling it a "personal matter unrelated to his position," and have declined to answer questions regarding his employment status.
