HOUSTON, Texas (WRIC) -- A middle school teacher is facing a felony charge, after she allegedly gave a student a lap dance for his birthday.
Police near Houston, Texas, say 42-year-old Felicia Smith gave the boy a "full-contact lap dance" that lasted about four minutes.
According to police, the incident occurred at Stovall Middle School on February 26. At the end of the lap dance, Smith reportedly hugged the student and said "I love you, baby. Happy birthday."
The lap dance was recorded and investigators are looking into the video.
Smith allegedly told police that she performed a lap dance on a student's birthday because the class convinced her to do it.
In a statement, the school district says it "takes this allegation seriously and is fully cooperating with prosecutors" and "a criminal charge of engaging in an inappropriate relationship with a student has been filed." Smith has been removed from the classroom pending an outcome to the investigation.
