Police arrested two southeast Oklahoma school teachers in separate abuse cases. 

In Coal County, Sheila Ray is accused of dragging a five-year-old down a hallway and hitting the girl with a ping pong paddle after the girl refused to wash her hands.

Ray is currently on administrative leave from her role as a teacher's aid at the Cottonwood school district, which is just outside Coalgate.

In Rattan in Pushmataha County, a softball coach is accused of sexual battery against one of his players.

Prosecutors say Jeffrey Watts held a player back in a weight room and inappropriately touched her.
