Urinate In A Bottle

Student: Teacher told me to urinate in bottle in corner of classroom

A middle school teacher instructed an eighth grader to urinate in a bottle in class instead of allowing him go to the bathroom, the boy and his mother said Friday.

Thirty-one classmates heard Michael Patterson, 14, relieve himself into an empty Gatorade bottle in a corner, they said.

"He said, 'Do what you got to do,"' the boy recalled of Tuesday's exchange. "I said, 'I've got a bottle,' and he said, 'Go in the corner.' So I just handled my business."

When he was finished, Michael said, his science teacher told him to go to the restroom to wash his hands and dispose of the bottle.

Sacramento school officials have suspended a 14-year-old boy who said he was forced to urinate in a bottle after his science teacher refused to let him use the restroom.

Michael Patterson says he went into a corner of the classroom last Tuesday and urinated into an empty Gatorade bottle after his teacher repeatedly refused to give him a pass to use the restroom and threatened to have him suspended if he left the classroom.

Marcus Walton, spokesman for the Sacramento City Unified School District said Monday that the teacher has been placed on paid leave and is being transferred to another school.
