KINGSPORT — Sullivan North High School teacher Lloyd Wayne Griffin, 55, has been arrested on public indecency charges, according to the Kingsport Police Department.

According to Sullivan County Director of Schools David Cox, the system suspended Griffin without pay before the indictments.

“The safety and well-being of our students is our priority and any allegations of this nature are taken seriously,” Cox said.

One charge is a felony, the other a misdemeanor, according to the presentment on which he was indicted. Griffin was indicted by a Sullivan County grand jury after a presentation by Cpl. Martin Taylor and arrested Feb. 25 on a $5,500 bond. He subsequently posted bond and was released, according to police.
