ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO): The former Jimtown High School teacher seen slapping a student on security footage has been arrested.

The Elkhart County Sheriff’s Office has made an arrest in relation to the February 25th battery of a student at Baugo Schools.

After a detailed investigation by the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Office, 61-year-old Michael Hosinski was taken into custody on the preliminary charge of battery, as a level 6 felony.

A request for formal charges has been submitted to the Elkhart County Prosecutor’s Office.

Not long after the incident took place last Friday, Hosinski put in an “accelerated retirement request” that was granted unanimously by school board members earlier this week.

Hosinski qualifies for retirement through the Rule of 85: He is at least 55 years old and has worked at least 30 years.

shouldn’t have done that, but odds are about 100-1 that the kid needed slapping

It was over wearing a hoodie. The parents should sue both the school and that slob, Michael Hosinski.

I saw that earlier. It was strange. I wonder what he was thinking.

Teachers shouldn’t slap kids. That said, it did seem to be a better learning environment when kids could be paddled. A couple of well aimed swats goes a long way to adjusting a kid’s attitude. I will bet the farm the kid caused the indecent and has been a problem child for many years. The school should have long ago taken care of the kid. I’d like to see the video of the kid abusing the teacher…………My subs in mostly elementary schools in the area. The kid’s behavior has not improved over the last two years.
