PAWHUSKA, Oklahoma -

A Pawhuska substitute teacher pleaded not guilty of indecent exposure Friday afternoon.

Lacey Sponsler was taken into custody after police say she was caught on camera exposing herself to Pawhuska students while doing a cartwheel.

A police report says Sponsler initially denied it happened, telling police she didn't remember doing a cartwheel, but, instead was dancing with students trying to be a 'cool teacher.'
