A former Prince William county substitute teacher and current track coach has been arrested after police discovered he had an inappropriate relationship with a student.

Police arrested 27-year-old Eric Lewis Thursday after Potomac High School discovered Lewis had been involved in a relationship with one of their students since 2008. That student is now 17.

Lewis has held various substitute-teaching positions in the county since 2006. He has taught at a total of 9 schools, 4 high schools and 5 middle schools, all in Prince William County. He last substitute taught in November of 2009, but was most recently a part-time track coach at Gar-Field High School.

Prince William County schools say that Lewis’ substitute status has been terminated and that a letter will be sent out to parents at all 9 schools at which he taught.

Lewis has been charged with 2 counts of crimes against nature and 2 counts of carnal knowledge. He is being held without bond.
