Finley Middle School Teacher Allegedly Assaults Student

A Finley Middle School teacher is on administrative leave for allegedly assaulting a 12-year-old girl.

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office says the student reported the teacher threw a hand bell at her on Tuesday while she was talking and being disruptive in class.

The school district is investigating and once the sheriff’s office completes the investigation, the case will be forwarded to the prosecutor’s office for review.
