ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A teacher is on paid leave while officials investigate why a student urinated in a lunch box during her class.

Orange County school officials say the Meadowbrook Middle School student urinated in a lunch box while hiding behind a classroom bookcase.

According to statements by other students in the class, school officials think that when the boy asked to go the restroom on Thursday, teacher Jameeka Chambers told him to hold it or use her lunch box.

An attorney for the Orange County School Board says the boy took the lunch box, hid behind a bookcase, urinated in it and returned it to her.

Chambers is to be interviewed on Monday.

A telephone number listed under the name of a Jameeka Chambers in Orlando was busy.
