The teacher is under investigation after taping a student at Lake Shore Elementary School in Pasadena to a chair after the student laughed when she threatened to do just that, according to WBFF-TV.

Principal Julie Little-McVearry said in a statement she was "shocked and appalled" by the incident, WBFF reported.

"During regular classroom instruction, the teacher, a long-term substitute, remarked to a student that if he did not return to his seat, she would tape him to his chair. The student found the remark funny, and the teacher proceeded to do as she said she would," Little-McVearry said.

School officials called police and said the incident is now under investigation.
