NORTH CHARLESTON, SC -

A Fort Dorchester wrestling coach turned himself into police Friday morning after authorities said he had a relationship with a student.

According to officials, Ben Laprad was arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor after officials said he had an, "inappropriate," relationship with a student.

A police report shows that on February 21, police responded to the school after the principal became worried that a student was leaving campus and meeting with a staff member.

The investigation revealed that the unidentified student befriended Laprad on Facebook before the two began exchanging text messages. The student told police that she went over to his home during her free period in school where the two, "kissed and held each other," according to the report.

The student told police that their clothes stayed on and said there was no fondling. She did, however, tell police that she sent Laprad an inappropriate picture that she believes was deleted.

Laprad has been placed on administrative leave. He was given a $5,000 bond Friday afternoon.
