A Rio Rancho Public Schools teacher has been arrested following an alleged incident with a student earlier this week.
According to an affidavit for arrest, the parent of a Rio Rancho Middle School student alleges her son was battered at the middle school by his teacher, Ken Boyd.
The affidavit states - citing interview with Middle School Principal Lynda Kitts - on Jan. 31 Boyd came into her office stating he was not cut out for the job and that he had told a child to "shut up and sit down."
Minutes later, the mother of a middle school student told the school her son called her crying accusing his teacher, Boyd, of choking him and locking him in a classroom.
