BULLIT COUNTY, Ky. (KMOV.com) -- Security cameras captured a teacher dragging a six-year-old student through the halls of a school and she is now back at the same job.

The teacher said the boy, who had ADHD, was disruptive in class and threatened a student.

She said she had no other choice but to drag the boy because he refused to walk on his own, but the boy's parents said she could have handled the situation better.

The teacher was fired by the school's superintendent, but after an appeal her punishment was reduced to a seven-week suspension and she is now back at work.

Police are investigating the incident to determine if criminal charges should be filed.
