SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WWJ) -- A police investigation is underway after the marching band director at Eisenhower High School resigned amid allegations he sent inappropriate emails to a student depicting sexual content.

The principal at Eisenhower High School sent a letter to parents informing them that the director, also a music teacher at the school, had resigned from the Utica Community Schools District.

The Macomb County Sheriff's Office says it received the complaint in October and is investigating the case.

The exact nature of the emails has not been disclosed, and the teacher's name is being withheld at this time, as no criminal charges have been filed. 

The band director had been at the school for nearly two decades, according to a report from The Macomb Daily.
