Delaware State Police have charged a Newark High School teacher with sexually harassing a student at a restaurant where the student worked. Police say 58-year-old Frank Smith went into a Burger King on Philadelphia Pike on Saturday and asked the manager if a certain student could take his order.

When the manager said no, police say Smith became agitated but placed his order and waited outside. Eventually, police say the 17-year-old went outside to help another customer and said hello to Smith.

Police say he allegedly made several inappropriate comments and has been charged with sexual harassment.
