School district officials said a local teacher and baseball coach was arrested this week, accused of driving under the influence and later resigned his position.

Cathy McMillan, spokesperson for Spartanburg County District One Schools, said the district was investigating allegations of drunk driving and a hit-and-run against Matthew McDaniels, 33, who was a teacher and coach at Chapman High School in Inman.

McMillan told FOX Carolina that McDaniels was not working at school on Wednesday and that it was very early in their ongoing investigation. At some point during the day, she said McDaniels resigned his teaching and coaching positions, effective immediately.

According to the Chapman High School's website, McDaniels was the head baseball and boys cross country coach and taught social studies and leadership academy. McDaniels took over Chapman's baseball program in 2008, according to the Spartanburg-Herald Journal.

The Spartanburg County Detention Center website said McDaniels was booked into jail about 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday on driving under the influence and hit-and-run unattended vehicle charges.
