A South Florida charter school teacher was arrested and is facing felony battery charges after forcing a student to use his bare hands to clear a urinal after he had clogged it with paper towels, according to a report today from Newser.

According to a police report obtained by NBC Miami, Jennifer Forshey, a teacher at the Broward Community Charter School in Coral Springs, Fla., allegedly forced a 10-year-old student to remove the paper towels from a school bathroom urinal using just his hands and another paper towel.

After the unclogging punishment, the boy’s hands reportedly “smelled like urine,” which he told police wasn’t his while also claiming he did not clog the urinal.

According to officials, Forshey didn’t allow the boy to use proper cleaning equipment to safely perform the task.

Forshey did admit to making the boy unclog the urinal, though she believes she didn’t commit any wrongdoing.

"I did not do anything illegal," Forshey said.

Forshey was booked Wednesday and later released on $1,000 bond.

The Broward Community Charter School said in a statement that they knew of the incident and have reprimanded Forshey.

Jenay Roberts, the mother of the 10-year-old boy, did not give a statement, though her attorney Joshua Hertz did say they took the incident public to find out if any other students had been subject to such punishments.

“We want to protect this child and possibly any other children that may have been subjected to this form or corporal and unmoral punishment,” Hertz said. “My client wants to find out why a teacher would allow this to happen.”
