Teacher lassos students, gets suspended

(KFVS) - A history teacher in Texas was suspended after lassoing students as part of a class activity.

The teacher, who hasn't been named, taught seventh graders in Rowlett, Tx. and was using the lasso to show students "how cowboys would corral maverick steers back into the herd", according to MSN Now.

The teacher lassoed the students as they ran around the classroom.

A 13-year-old reportedly has bruises on his neck from the activity and his parents say the sores seem to be getting worse.

Police are considering criminal charges, but no word as of now on what those charges would be.
