STRATFORD, Conn. -- A former Stratford High School math teacher and Stamford resident charged earlier this week with trying to bribe a teen to erase a video of him allegedly giving him a wedgie, has also been accused of tying up a 19-year-old man and "roughhousing" with the teen's younger brother and a friend at their home, according to the Connecticut Post.

Gregg Gustafson, who was released on $25,000 following his arrest, would also wrestle with the teens and tickle their ears, the Connecticut Post reported. On one occasion he tied up the 19-year-old for several hours and didn't let him go until his mother returned home, said the Connecticut Post.

The mother told police that Gustafson was supposed to be tutoring the boys in the basement, but she had no idea what when on, according to the Connecticut Post. The older teen told police that he had wrestled with Gustafson at least 15 to 20 times and that the teacher would take him and another student out of class to pull on their underwear to give them wedgies, added the Connecticut Post.
