Two Arrested in Prostitution Bust
Two men were arrested in Lexington on prostitution charges and one of them is a West Tennessee high school teacher and coach.
Police said they arrested Adam Comer early Monday morning for agreeing to pay Ryan Weimar a fee for providing sexual services. Both were charged with prostitution.
Sarah Lawrence told 7 Eyewitness News that her daughter, Abigail used to have Comer as a history teacher, "Abigail said he used some inappropriate words and he always tried to act like the kid in the class and the cool one and such and that is not what a teacher is there for," said Lawrence.
Comer listed his employer as Decatur County Schools and is listed as Riverside High School's soccer coach by the TSSAA. According to Lawrence, Comer teaches history and economics at Riversid.
"I'm concerned and it's very disheartening that we have that in our school system," added Lawrence.
Other parents hope the 32-year-old will not be teaching in the fall. "It makes me worried because my kids are in elementary and getting on up there, it's scary," said Amanda Taylor.
Lexington police said they found Comer and Weimar in the parking lot of a business.
"They are the role models for our children and how are children are to be and this is certainly not what I want my child to be," said Lawrence.
Weimer is still in custody and Comer has been released on $1,000 bond.
