GONZALES, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Sheriff's deputies say a Donaldsonville High School teacher and coach is accused of giving steroids to a 16-year-old student athlete.

Ascension Parish Chief Deputy Tony Bacala says 56-year-old Curtis Tsuruda served as a physical education teacher and a strength and conditioning coach at the high school since August.

Bacala says detectives began investigating on Friday after receiving information that a coach had allegedly given steroids to a student athlete, telling the student the pills were amino acid/protein pills to help him perform better in sports.

Tsuruda was booked with distribution of a Schedule III controlled dangerous substance, distribution to a student, violation of the controlled dangerous substance school zone law and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

It was unclear whether Tsuruda has an attorney.
