An anonymous tipster told authorities about the taser incident.

Investigators say students were talking with Mileham about baseball practice after school when one student asked if they could retrieve a taser from their vehicle to use on another student. The investigation shows the student who recovered the taser from their car did so in hopes of avoiding additional conditioning exercises in after-school baseball practice.

Police believe Mileham allowed the student to leave the classroom, and retrieve the taser used on another student.

Police say the student tased at the school did not receive any injuries that required medical attention.

Mileham was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor, a third degree class B felony.

The tipster also told police that Mileham would allow students to smoke and vape, according to investigators.

5NEWS has reached out for comment from Prairie Grove High School about the citation, but have not received one yet.
