Apparently a Denver elementary school secretary taped a student last week. And we’re not talking videotape, we’re taking duct tape. From CBS:

Palmer Elementary first grader, Joshua, was allegedly duct taped by Carter on Wednesday after being sent to the principal’s office.

Joshua,6, told CBS Affiliate CBS4 he was sent to the principal’s office on Wednesday when a substitute teacher said he was disrupting his first grade class.

“The secretary taped my mouth shut and taped my wrists together,” he said, referring to the principal’s secretary.

The secretary was arrested on Monday.
