This from the Middlesboro Daily News:

Teacher charged with assaulting student

A high school teacher ... has been charged with assaulting his student during school, according to law enforcement. Jack Spiers, who teaches Spanish at Thomas Walker High School in Ewing, Va. was charged with assault and battery ... after a warrant was obtained from the county magistrate by the parents of the student who made the claim...

[The] student claimed the incident occurred, ...[and] school administration, looked into the matter and didn’t feel the charge was warranted.

"It is my understanding that the student alleged that the teacher touched him on the arm,” trying to direct the student during class, said [Sheriff Gary] Parsons.
