TEMPE, Ariz. -- A physical education teacher in the Phoenix Elementary School District has been arrested for alleged sexual conduct with a student.
Authorities say 36-year-old Nicole Renee Wooten was taken into custody Wednesday evening by Tempe police.
Police say Wooten is being held on suspicion of three counts of sexual conduct with a minor.
They say Wooten is a PE teacher at Herrera School for the Fine Arts and Dual Language in Phoenix.

Tempe police say they began an investigation after receiving information from Phoenix police.
