Randy Savage: North Texas Middle School Teacher Busted for Student Sex
After an investigation by local police and the Texas Rangers, Randy Lynn Bratcher Savage, a sixth and seventh grade reading teacher in north Texas, has been arrested and charged with two felonies.
Savage, 31, was removed from Clarksville's Cheatham Middle School last week and turned herself in for arrest earlier this week. The victim in the case is a 13-year-old boy.
According to an arrest affidavit obtained by the Clarksville Times, the boy's parent called the law after a sexually explicit handwritten note, allegedly penned by Savage, was found in the boy's pocket.
Further digging uncovered texts, cellphone messages and Facebook messages from Savage to the boy, often sent during the school's lunch break. The boy is said to have told his parents that he and Savage kissed and hugged but went no further than that.
Savage is charged with indecency with a child and improper relationship with a student. As of Wednesday, she was being held in the Red River County jail on two $10,000 bonds.
She is not, of course, to be confused with the late Randy "Macho Man" Savage. We think.
