Pranee Andrus, a special needs teacher at Narcoossee Elementary School in St. Cloud, Florida, is accused of dragging a five-year-old autistic boy named Phoenix Hanson across the room:
"He tried to get away from her and he ran to a corner. (I'm) not sure, under a desk, and she went and drug him out by his leg, which caused him to get rug burn on his elbow," said Hanson's father, Craig Hanson.
Andrus was apparently upset with Phoenix because he wasn't sharing toys.
Andrus is accused of asking his classmates to bully him.
"She would ask other students, 'Should I hit him?' You know? Then encouraged them to him and kick him," said Moreno.
