SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A former New Mexico high school teacher, once accused of putting a student in a cage, is running for mayor of Santa Fe.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (https://goo.gl/afR0Co) former math and automotive mechanics teacher Abigail Fox said Friday she is jumping into the race as a political outsider and education advocate.

The 53-year-old Fox taught at Santa Fe High School for almost 13 years before resigning in 2011.

Fox stepped down after cellphone video surfaced of her locking an automotive student in an outdoor chain-link storage area at the school. She was placed on paid administrative leave, and police investigated potential child abuse and false imprisonment charges.

No charges were filed.

On her Twitter profile, Fox describes herself as a “hemp advocate” and “outspoken activist for social change.”
