FAIRFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — A 24-year-old paraprofessional is facing charges for dragging a student.

The incident allegedly happened last May at Fairfield Ludlowe High School.

John Nuzzolo is accused of dragging a female student down the hallway of that school.

He has been charged with second-degree unlawful restraint and disorderly conduct.

The 17-year-old victim told police she was talking with Nuzzolo when he grabbed her backpack and dragged her about 30 feet.

Police say Nuzzolo resigned shortly after the incident.
