POST, TX (KCBD) -

The owner of a Post donut shop was taken to jail Thursday after chasing a middle school student all the way to the schoolhouse door and hitting him with a broom.

Garza County authorities say a group of students was visiting the shop on Wednesday morning when the shop owner, Sueng Hoon Lee, accused one boy of shoplifting.

The group left and Lee called the accused boy back. When the boy returned to the store, Lee accused him again and grabbed a broom.

When the boy left the store again, Lee followed him all the way to the door to the school, hitting him with the broom.

Two crossing guards saw what was happening and intervened. Police arrived and arrested Lee in his store.

The child has superficial cuts and bruises from the incident.

Lee was taken to the Garza County Jail and charged with Injury to a child.
