(Scroll down for video) A teacher was suspended from school for burning words into the hands of his students.

The science teacher of Oregon, used a Tesla coil to burn the phrase “I love mom” into the arms of students.

37-year-old Samuel Dufner was arrested Tuesday, at the South Salem High School on charges of criminal mistreatment.

Dufner asked students to volunteer to be used in an experiment. He then burned “I love Mom” with a heart shape on their arms.

Some parents were upset with the experiment and filed a complaint.

Dufner was released from jail after posting $2,000 bail. The Salem-Keizer School District placed him on leave, pending the outcome of the investigation.

So far, the district attorney’s office chose not to pursue charges against the teacher.
