Duct Tape

Student breaks arm after his legs duct taped by teacher

Parents and students are furious over a teacher, accused of duct-taping a student on Long Island.

Police arrested the teacher after the taped up boy fell and broke his arm. Parents in Setauket are upset and say the gym teacher went way too far.


Suffolk County police say 52-year-old Matthew Foster is charged with assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say Foster duct taped the student's knee in a locker room and the boy ended up hobbling into the gym breaking his arms.

"It was unacceptable. He took some duct tape and warped the kid's legs up, apparently, because this kid was late for a class," said Lt. Michael Murphy from Suffolk County police. "We don't really know exactly what was going on in his mind."
