A high school teacher has resigned during the middle of an investigation in which he allegedly used his teeth to remove the garter of a student during the prom.

Brett Coogle, an English teacher at Western High School, quit on Monday said Lauren Roberts, public information officer with the Jefferson County Public Schools.

Roberts said a photo taken at the school's prom on May 11 appeared to show Coogle taking a candy garter off a female student with his teeth. Coogle was reassigned to non-instructional duties on May 17.

Coogle worked in the school system since 2001 and was the school's volleyball and softball coach.
