An elementary and middle school teacher is facing charges for allegedly holding a student with his arms pinned behind his back while inviting his classmates to punch him.
50-year-old Craig Schmeckpeper lives in North Bend. Until recently, he was employed at North Bend Central teaching physical education to elementary and middle school students. According to the school website, he was also the head coach for junior high school football, in addition to assistant varsity track coach.
Last February, Schmeckpeper was teaching physical education to a class of elementary school students.
