Police said an Ohio elementary school student bit a teacher on the arm and had to be pried off by a school official.

Dayton police said the child was brought to the assistant principal's office at Patterson-Kennedy Elementary School Monday by teacher Stephen Green.

The boy began throwing things in the office and had to be restrained by Green.

Assistant Principal Jack Johnson told police that Green was bitten on the forearm while clutching the child. Johnson said he had to pry the boy's mouth open so he'd let go.

Green, 54, went to a hospital to be treated for the bite.

The child, whose age was not released, was taken to a hospital for a psychological examination.
