Local teacher arrested for assaulting student
BATON ROUGE, LA (FOX44) -- The EBR School Board is responding to the arrest of a Broadmoor Middle school teacher for cruelty to juveniles.
Ella Grant was arrested by the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office and charged after she's thought to have lifted a student's desk with the student still sitting down. According to reports, the student had a mild concussion.
Today, an EBR schools spokesperson says they're putting Grant on paid administrative leave until the investigation wraps up.
Grant is thought to have picked up the desk because the student was misbehaving and not listening.
