NASHVILLE, Tenn.– Two Nashville teachers have been charged with heroin possession after making a “hand-to-hand” transaction in a fast food restaurant parking lot on Saturday night.

According to Metro Police, Joshua Taylor Johnson and Michael Clendening both teach at Dupont Tyler Middle Prep. The men were together in Johnson’s car when police observed the heroin purchase.

The men each admitted to buying two grams of heroin each at a cost of $800.

The amount of heroin purchased is considered a misdemeanor. Both men are expected to be in court on November 6th.

According to the school’s website, Johnson is a physical education teacher and Clendening a visual arts teacher.

In a statement released by Metro Public Schools, both teachers have been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation. The statement says Metro Schools will monitor the charges to “determine any further steps that may need to be taken.”

Clendening has been a Metro Schools employee since Feb. 2005 and Johnson since 2009. Johnson also served as the school’s football and wrestling coach.
