A staff member at a school in Norwalk, Connecticut was arrested after a fifth-grade student lost consciousness after she demonstrated a chokehold.

NORWALK, Connecticut -- A staff member at a school in Connecticut was arrested after police say a fifth-grade student lost consciousness when she demonstrated a chokehold maneuver.

Stefanie Sanabria, 50, was working as a math coach at Brookside Elementary School back in February when officials say she performed the martial arts move on three students.

"They were demonstrating jujitsu moves to some of the students in the class who had volunteered to do that," Lieutenant Joseph Dinho of Norwalk Police said.

An arrest warrant was issued for Sanabria and she was arrested at her home a week later.

With the assistance of the Norwalk Police Department, we determined that a teacher was demonstrating defensive holds to students, and a student fainted during that demonstration.

Investigators are looking into how a math lesson could have turned into a martial arts class or even a self-defense demonstration, using something as controversial as a chokehold. »
