BAKER - Baker police arrested a teacher Wednesday for choking and dragging a six-year-old at Bakerfield Elementary.

Mildred Russ was charged with one count of cruelty to a juvenile and booked into East Baton Rouge Prison.

According to witnesses, Russ immobilized the six-year-old child by wrapping her legs around her at recess, then wrapped a sweater around her neck and pulled on it when she attempted to move.

Witnesses also say Russ then dragged the child back inside the school with such force that the child was pulled out of her own shoes.
