A Coral Springs teacher is facing battery charges after allegedly making a student unclog a urinal with his bare hands, police said.
Jennifer King Forshey, 58, of Hollywood, is accused of ordering a 10-year-old to remove wet wads of paper towels from a urinal in a boys' restroom at Broward Community Charter School on Feb. 6, according to the arrest report.
Forshey was arrested Wednesday and charged with battery on a child by exposure to urine, records show.
She was released early Thursday after posting $1,000 bond, according to jail records.
The boy told investigators the paper towels were soaked with someone else's urine so he tried to use dry paper towels to pick them up, yet the urine seeped through. His hands smelled of urine; there was no soap in the restroom, so he went to the dean's office to ask for some, the report stated.
Another teacher said he witnessed the incident and heard Forshey telling the student to rinse his hands under running water, police said.
During questioning, Forshey admitted to telling the student to "clean the paper towels out" of the urinal without providing him anything to prevent contact with the urine. She told police she saw nothing wrong with what she had done until she was arrested.
