CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. — A teacher has been arrested after she allegedly forced a 10-year-old student to clean a clogged urinal with his bare hands, according to WSVN.

Police say Broward Community Charter School West teacher Jennifer Forshey, 58, was arrested Wednesday after being accused of forcing the student to clean the urine-filled, clogged urinal with his bare hands as a form of punishment for originally clogging it.

Forshey bonded out of the Broward County Jail Wednesday night and says she “did not do anything illegal.”

She is charged with felony battery of a child by exposure to urine.

The 10-year-old boy told WSVN he felt embarrassed, adding that others at the school have been bothering him about the incident.

According to reports, the school became aware of the incident when the student went to the school’s office asking for soap because his hands smelled of urine.

The family has hired attorney Joshua Hertz, who said the boy never clogged the urinal, according to WSVN.

The school has not commented on the incident. A comment is expected to come Thursday.
