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.
