Jail records show Evans was booked at 9:40 a.m. Monday morning and released about two hours later on $1,000 bond.
When the school system became aware of the allegations, Evans was placed on paid administrative leave Oct. 6, Baldwin County Public Schools Director of Communications Terry Wilhite said.

“Proceedings are underway to terminate his employment,” he said. “The matter is under investigation by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office. Daphne High School is an outstanding school, with an outstanding reputation. The focus at Daphne High School will continue to be on academic excellence.”

According to Wilhite, Evans was hired by the Baldwin County Board of Education on June 19, 2014. The investigation is ongoing.
