Lewis was booked into the Harrison County Adult Detention Facility on a $150,000 bond. He bonded out Monday night, according to the jail docket.

Officials with the school district confirmed Lewis was a substitute teacher contracted through the staffing agency Kelly Services. All of the school district’s substitute teachers are contracted through Kelly Services.
