A track coach and biology teacher in South Carolina was allegedly caught at the side of the road in a state of undress with a student. WSPA reports that Elizabeth Heaton Taylor, 27, was found with the student by a Greenville County Sheriff’s deputy on the evening of February 15 on Holland Road in the town of Simpsonville, about 10 miles south east of Greenville. The pair were in Taylor’s white Ford Explorer. The station’s report says that Taylor gave authorities a fake name but later told the deputies that she and the student had sex on two separate occasions.

Greenville Online reports that both of the alleged encounters occurred some time after January 1.

Taylor is facing charges of sexual battery with a student 16 or 17 years of age. On February 16, Taylor was fired from her job at Greer High School, district spokeswoman Beth Brotherton told Greenville Online. The former educator has been booked into the Greenville County Detention Center with a $10,250 bond.
