The Observer-Reporter reports another teacher was the first to report the alleged inappropriate relationship to school district officials after seeing the aide picking up the student at a nearby Subway.

Officials say Ardeno, who worked for the district for 13 years, and the student, who is a senior and is over 18, began interacting two months ago when she asked the teen about his tattoos and smile, the Observer-Reporter reports.

Their interactions were reportedly seen on high school surveillance video. But, the Observer-Reporter reports that police say there did not appear to be any physical contact there.
