A high school teacher in Largo, Florida, was arrested Wednesday for allegedly spraying a student with disinfectant for not wearing a mask correctly.
A police report said the incident was caught on video Tuesday, Fox 32 reported.
“Christina Reszetar, 51, sprayed the unnamed student with ‘Claire disinfectant aerosol spray’ because, she allegedly told investigators, ‘the kids were not wearing their mask properly,’” the article continued.
The police report said the teacher allegedly sprayed “into the path of their faces and bodies.”
“On Wednesday, Reszetar was escorted from school and booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Reszetar appeared before a judge Thursday, facing four counts of child abuse,” WFLA reported.
When she appeared in court, Reszetar told the judge she teaches math to learning disabled students at Largo High School and has worked as a teacher for 21 years. She also claimed the video footage shows the allegations are not true.
