BROWNWOOD, Texas - A 27-year-old former Brownwood Middle School coach was arrested Monday on a charge of indecency with a child.

Landon Westerman, whose address is listed as Grapevine in jail records, turned himself in Monday and bailed out on a $75,000 bond Tuesday.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office is looking into allegations that Westerman had an inappropriate relationship with a student.

In a statement, Brownwood ISD said called Westerman's arrest shocking and noted that the school administration is cooperating fully with law enforcement officials. Also, no other incidents were reported to BISD administration during Westerman's one year with the district.
