RIVERDALE, Ga. - A substitute teacher at Riverdale Elementary School in Clayton County is charged with child molestation after students said he urinated into a trash can inside a classroom.

The teacher, 60-year-old Coleman Eaton Jr., was being held without bond Thursday in the Clayton County Jail.

Riverdale police Major Greg Barney says Eaton reportedly walked to the back of the class on Wednesday, told the fourth-graders not to turn around and urinated into a garbage can. He says one of the students went to the school office and made a complaint.

Barney says officers went to the school and interviewed the students and Eaton, then placed him under arrest.
