The teacher who was hit wants to press charges!
A 17-year-old in South Carolina could face 30 days in jail after he allegedly hit a teacher in the eye with a paper airplane.
“The South Strand News obtained an incident report that claims the teacher, Edward McIver, tracked down the school’s resource officer after he was hit with the paper. The officer reported that McIver was angry and his eye appeared to be “very red.” McIver claimed he knew which student threw the airplane, and that the student had exhibited behavioral problems in the past. He told the resource officer that if the student was indeed responsible for throwing the airplane, he wanted to press charges.” (theindychannel.com)
The student did admit to throwing the airplane, saying he was aiming for the teacher’s head. The teenager was cited for third-degree assault and battery and taken to a juvenile detention facility. He was released on bond and will have to appear in court on Feb. 14th.
