SANTA FE, NM - A New Mexico high school teacher is apparently caught on tape locking a student in a fenced cage.
Cell phone video shows the teacher placing the freshman into the caged area with the help of several students.
Police say the student was acting out in class and the teacher decided to lock him up instead of sending him to detention.
The teacher could face child abuse and false imprisonment charges.
