State v. Mr. T (DMC No. 7616)

FELONY DISRUPTION of an EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION, FELONY AGGRAVATED ASSAULT on a TEACHER and DISORDERLY CONDUCT NOT CHARGED – State v. Mr. T (DMC No. 7616) (Chandler Police Department DR No. 2005-13-4523): Mr. T was an emotionally challenged student at Chandler High School who was being bullied by fellow classmates. On that particular day, there was a substitute teacher teaching the class. When Mr. T got up to leave the class and walked directly to his counselors office to report what had occurred, the substitute teacher ran outside and alerted Security that Mr. T was leaving the classroom. When Security confronted and emotionally distraught Mr. T, he had a breakdown and they grabbed him.

One of the Security Guards was bending his thumb back and stating “I will break your thumb if you don’t comply”. Mr. T was struggling with the Security Guards and he kicked his teacher. He was subsequently charged with Felony Disruption of an Educational Institution pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute ARS 13-2911(A)(1). He was also charged with Felony Aggravated Assault on a teacher pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute ARS 13-1204(8)(d), and Disorderly Conduct. We were able to fully explain the situation to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Officer, and the Prosecutor elected not to file any charges against Mr. T.
