A former central Indiana teacher faces a gun-related charge after police say they traced a loaded gun that fell from a classroom ceiling to his former wife.

Fifty-two-year-old Christopher Johnson of Frankfort turned himself in Tuesday at the Howard County Criminal Justice Center and was later released on bond. He faces a felony charge of possessing a firearm on school property and a misdemeanor criminal recklessness charge.

The Associated Press couldn't reach Johnson for comment Wednesday because his number was unlisted.

The Kokomo Tribune reports the gun was found in a Kokomo Area Career Center classroom that Johnson used before he left the school last May. Police say he told investigators it would be logical for him to hide the gun to keep it away from students.
