YONKERS - A teacher and teacher's aide have been arrested for allegedly restraining and beating a student at a Yonkers school for kids with emotional and behavioral problems. 

Biondi School teacher Pierre Henry and teacher's aide Michael Holt were arrested Tuesday and charged with numerous misdemeanors for allegedly roughing up a 13-year-old male student in October of 2013. 

This is not the first time there has been controversy on the campus of the Leakes and Watts school. In April of 2012, 16-year-old student Corey Foster died after getting into a fight with staff members on the school's basketball court.

Corey's mother is suing the school claiming the restraint used on her son is known to be deadly.

School officials told News 12 that they conducted an investigation after learning about the incident. They say they notified the justice center and terminated the employees.
