YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A middle school student faces expulsion after he took video of a special needs student going to the bathroom.

Youngstown City School officials tell 21 news the incident happened Monday at P. Ross Berry Middle School on the West side.

They say a student videotaped the boy, showed the video to other classmates, then uploaded the video to Youtube.

"Our commitment to the parents is to make sure he has an aid when he leaves the room either going to the cafeteria or to the restroom," says Doug Hiscox, deputy superintendent. "We think we've covered all the bases that may have allowed the incident to occur."

Hiscox says the video, which did not contain nudity or show the teen with his pants down, was destroyed and immediately removed from Youtube.

The student was suspended for ten days and faces an expulsion hearing.
