An Indianapolis teacher who was arrested on suspicion of sexual misconduct with a minor at a high school has been placed on administrative leave.

Officers were called to the Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School at 3960 Meadows Drive on Sunday.

A 15-year-old girl and her mother accused Bruce Ryan, 43, of inappropriate behavior with a minor.

Ryan was later arrested on a charge of sexual misconduct with a minor.

"We are cooperating with investigators to determine the facts surrounding this regrettable incident," the school said in a news release. "Ryan is on administrative leave from his teaching position pending the outcome of the investigation."

Ryan has been a teacher at Tindley since 2004, according to the release.

The Marion County Sheriff's Department said Ryan was released Tuesday on bond.
