A former teacher at Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences, who recently was reported missing and then was spotted, has now been arrested.

John Albert Eaton, 44, was arrested Sunday in Red Bank on a DUI charge.

He gave his address as Soddy Daisy.

Eaton's wife had reported him missing after she said he told her he was going to the school on a Sunday afternoon to do some work for the coming week.

She said he did not return.

School officials said he never made it to the campus that day. They said he was no longer on staff at CSAS, effective last Thursday.

Police closed the missing persons case after Eaton was spotted on store videos around town.
