(OHIO.COM) A Firestone High School music teacher is being investigated for using racial epithets in a Facebook rant about Halloween trick-or-treaters.

David Spondike, 51, was placed on paid leave Monday pending the outcome of an internal investigation into a post made on his personal Facebook page, said Akron schools spokesman Mark Williamson.

This is at least the fourth time Spondike has been investigated by the district for inappropriate behavior.
