Edwards was arrested on a $200,000 warrant citing two felony counts of molesting a child, and police said Edwards was taken into custody Thursday at his Hayward home without incident.
Investigators uncovered additional information on a previously unsubstantiated allegation of child molestation from 2001, which resulted in the second count, police said.
During the investigation, Edwards ended his employment with the school district and is no longer associated with the school, according to police.READ MORE: CA Drought: Big Sur 'Colorado' Fire Could Be Start Of Year-Round Wildfire Season
