(TAMPA, FL) — Police arrested a former Florida Christian school teacher on Tuesday for allegedly twerking on a student.

According to authorities, 39-year-old Julie Hoover was accused of dancing on an underage student on April 8 during the school prom. Hoover was a teacher at Point of Grace Christian Academy located in Perry.

Investigators say a student told them that Hoover also pressured the student to drink alcohol. According to the school, the staff had alcohol in the back to drink after the prom, when students had left.

Investigators said there was an attempt to stop Hoover while she danced on the student, even getting between the two.

Hoover was arrested on contributing to the delinquency of a minor and a second felony charge of an authority figure soliciting or engaging in lewd conduct with a student.

Police say this is not new from Hoover who was put behind bars for alleged misconduct in the past. Last June, Hoover was arrested for allegedly sexting an 18-year-old high school senior. The student’s mother reported the misconduct after she found the messages on the teen’s phone, which allegedly included a plan to sneak the student into Hoover’s home while her husband was at work.

An official with Point of Grace Christian released a statement to WCTV, stating that Hoover no longer works at the school and that they are cooperating with the investigation.
