SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. -- Failing to get a classroom device to work, a substitute teacher at a Sarasota County school snapped, punching and pushing three second-graders who had tried to help, the Sarasota County sheriff's office said.
A student who was punched in the stomach vomited in the classroom. Another student went to the hospital a day after the Jan. 6 incident, complaining of chest pain, the sheriff's office said.
William Amory, 55, of Sarasota was arrested Friday and charged with three counts of child abuse for "inflicting physical and mental injury to three different children," the sheriff's office said.
Amory punched a 7-year-old boy and an 8-year-old boy, and pushed a 7-year-old girl, a release said. The students attend Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota.
Amory reportedly became upset when he couldn't get the classroom's interactive whiteboard to work. Th
