FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - An East Allen County Schools parent is accusing her son's teacher of spanking him with his pants down in front of the class.

Fort Wayne Police confirm a detective is investigating an incident at Village Elementary after the child's mother called police Monday.

In a report, the mother says the child was acting up in class. The teacher made the student sit in the corner and when he continued to act up the teacher pulled the boys pants down and spanked him for misbehaving.

The mom says the child is mildly disabled.

East Allen County School officials confirm a teacher is on administrative leave and they have a "no corporal punishment" policy district-wide.
