A teacher from East Middle School in Farmington Hills is now on leave an incident involving a sixth-grade student. The teacher allegedly got physical with the student when he refused to stand for the pledge of allegiance. 

Stone Chainey was finishing up his first week at the school when the teacher apparently pulled him from his seat during the incident. The reason the child refused to stand is that he pledges to God and family and not the flag.
