AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- Police say no crime occurred when a second-grade Colorado teacher taped her students' mouth shut when they wouldn't be quiet.
Police interviewed the teacher at Fulton Academy after a student told her mother who then reported Thursday's incident to police. The student confirmed to police the teacher's statement to an officer that it was a joke, the children were laughing, and had asked that their mouths be taped.
Police in a statement say the incident did not meet the elements of any municipal violation or state statute.
The unidentified teacher is on paid administrative leave while the Aurora Public Schools district investigates.
