A teacher in the state's mid-coast region has been charged for allegedly assaulting a student.

According to an article on the WABI TV website, police have charged 52 year old Christian Koelbl for allegedly assaulting a kindergarten student at the GH Jewett School in Bucksport.

Police were notified of the alleged assault on November 21st.  The incident reportedly happened on October 20th.  The article does not explain why a month went by between the day of the incident and when police were called about the situation.
