A former LAUSD teacher has been sentenced to four years and four months in prison for molest and leading police on a wild pursuit.

Kip Richard Arnold, 51, pleaded guilty to committing lewd acts on a 14-year-old girl and evading police in a Downey courtroom in November.

The physical education teacher had been the focus of a child molestation investigation involving a former student.

The suspect led police on a wild chase from Lakewood to Rolling Hills Estates in July that ended with his car launching 70 feet down an embankment and into a tree.

Officials had to extricate the 51-year-old from under his truck following the crash.
