taserA school resource officer from Ohio was placed on administrative leave for using a stun gun on a sleeping student, school officials said.

Maryssa Boskoski, 32, was a part-time resource officer assigned to Liberty Preparatory School in Smithville, Ohio, for the year, WEWS reported. A male student, who is a junior at the school, would not wake up for his teacher or Interim Principal Jenna Parnell on August 30, according to the news station.

Boskoski arrived at the classroom with Parnell and activated the Taser a few feet away from the teen, WEWS reported. The Taser did not touch the student, but the sparks from the Taser alarmed other teens in the classroom and woke up the sleeping student. The school announced Boskoski was placed on administrative leave on Wednesday.

“She did take her Taser, remove the cartridge from it, and arced the Taser,” said Smithville Police Chief Howard Funk.
