Adrian Gonzalo Tovar has got to be the hippest-looking 32-year-old high school band director in East Texas: the scruffy beard, the haircut, the medallion. Unfortunately, that visual information comes from his (oddly fuzzy) mugshot.
Tovar was arrested and resigned his job as band director at Grapeland High after questions were raised about his relationship with a student.
Tovar is from Austin, according to his driver's license, but apparently lives in Crockett.
There's little detail about what happened, but the Web site CountyLifeOnline.com says Tovar resigned effective immediately last week after being with the school less than a year.
He was picked up on Monday on the charges of an instructor having an inappropriate relationship with a student.
