Deputies on Monday arrested a Naples High School teacher, who is also an assistant varsity football coach, on suspicion of engaging in sexual relations with a minor and soliciting sex from another juvenile.

Brock Smith, 30, faces two felony charges of sexual assault of a victim 16 or 17 years old in one case. In another case, he faces felony charges of soliciting sexual activity with a minor and transmission of harmful material to a minor, according to a Collier County Sheriff's Office arrest report.

Deputies and a Florida Department of Children & Families supervisor made contact with Smith at the school at 1:58 p.m. Monday as they "were investigating an unrelated case at the time," according to the report. No information about how the investigation started was available Tuesday afternoon.

Smith provided "a non-custodial taped sworn statement" related to the incident authorities were investigating, the report stated. During the interview, Smith told investigators that he sent the girl "nude images of himself" in November, according to the report. She was 17 years old at the time, the report states.

Smith also told investigators that he had sexual intercourse with the 17-year-old in a bathroom, according to the report. When investigators finished their interview, Smith left in his vehicle.

A week earlier, on Aug. 8, the DCF supervisor and deputies had obtained a taped sworn statement from the girl.

During that interview she told investigators that Smith had sent her a message on Snapchat, a social media app, in the first half of November 2016, telling her he was going to visit her at her workplace, according to the report.

Smith arrived at her workplace and suggested they go into a restroom, where they then had sexual intercourse in a bathroom stall, the report states. The girl told investigators they had sexual intercourse one additional time in November 2016 in the same restroom, according to the report.

The girl and Smith "ceased communication after the second incident," the report states.

In June, Smith sent another girl a message requesting to follow her through Instagram, a photo social media app, according to a second arrest report. When the 16-year-old accepted his request after a few days, Smith replied, "About friginn time," the report states.

Smith contacted the girl on or about July 16 through Instagram. After a brief conversation, Smith said: "You should delete this message thread ... and use Snapchat to talk to me," the report states.

The girl then added Smith to her Snapchat account, and Smith sent her lewd messages, the report states. Smith sent the girl a photo, via Snapchat, of himself nude, standing in front of a bathroom mirror, brushing his teeth, according to the report.

Smith then requested that the girl send him a photo, the report states. He continued to message the girl through Snapchat for about a week and told her "that he was free in the mornings to meet for sex," according to the report.

Smith told the girl that his wife would be out of town Sept. 22 and that the girl could come to his house to have sex, the report states. The girl told investigators she started to feel uncomfortable and told Smith to stop contacting her.

Deputies arrested Smith at his East Naples home Monday afternoon. He was booked at the Naples Jail Center, with bail set at $400,000.

Collier school district spokesman Greg Turchetta in an emailed statement Tuesday said the district has "been made aware of the arrest of a district high school teacher."

"We are cooperating with the Collier County Sheriff's Office on this matter," Turchetta said in the email.

Smith was hired in 2011 and has worked at the school for six years, Turchetta said. After his release by the Sheriff's Office, Smith will be reassigned to the MLK Jr. Administrative Center, he said.

Students in Collier start school Wednesday.

Smith is the Naples High School varsity coach for wide receivers.
