Flint substitute teacher accused of duct taping students' mouths
A Flint substitute teacher is facing a variety of charges, including assault and battery, for allegedly duct taping the mouths of several elementary school students on several occasions last year.
A 15 count warrant was authorized on Wednesday. The incidents allegedly occurred at Flint's Brownell Elementary School. The unnamed teacher was fired by the Flint school district in December.
Flint city attorney Peter Bade says during the subsequent investigation, the teacher claimed that the school’s principal had placed duct tape on the teacher's mouth.
“Statements made by the alleged victim, the substitute teacher, weren’t credible and there was no corroborating evidence,” says Bade.
The teacher’s name is not being released until after the arraignment.
