A gym teacher in Stockton, California is facing charges after a video surfaced showing him dragging a female student and trying to force her into a swimming pool.
News 10 noted that the footage, which was shot by another student, shows physical education teacher Denny Peterson, dragging a 14-year-old girl who did not want to get into the water.
In the mobile phone footage, other students are seen at times intervening and trying to pull the girl from Peterson.
“Regardless of her participation it should disgust you how this man put his hands on a 14-year-old girl. She said multiple times, ‘my top is falling down,'” Somera said.
