In a complaint to police on Jan. 8, the four students told investigators that they had been forced to stand in a corner, restrained with zip ties, and sometimes had clothespins clamped on their nipples as punishment.
After the complaint to police. Ngissah was arrested the next day on suspicion of inflicting corporal punishment on the three teenagers and one young adult. He was released on $100,000 bail.
Attempts by The Associated Press to reach Ngissah for comment were unsuccessful, and an email request seeking comment from the academy was not returned.
