Fausto Arana, 45, was arrested by Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies on on Aug. 24 at 2:45 a.m. but was released the same day at 3:30 p.m., according to arrest records.
“It still has to go through the process, he was cited but there is a legal process,” Gail Pinkser, spokeswoman for the William S. Hart Union High School District.
“He’s not a teacher and does not hold any other position with the District above being a ‘walk-on’ coach,” Pinsker said. “He had to apply (for the position) and go through a strict background check and fingerprinting as does all of our staff at the Hart District.”
