Last updated on Tuesday, January 18, 2011

(FRANKFORT, IN) - A 12-year-old girl claims her music teacher at Frankfort’s Green Meadow Elementary School hit her with a drum stick.

Frankfort Police and Child Protective Services are investigating.

Sarah Swearingen says she was struggling with a new drum roll, and Teacher Max Blessing came over to her drum set, showed her how to do it and then hit her twice on the hand with his drum stick.

Blessing denies it, but the girl's parents have taken her out of school.
