Albany High assault

September 19, 2002

Albany--  A 16-year-old Albany High student is arrested for attacking his teacher during class. The male student shoved and pushed down ninth grade math Teacher, Liz Anne Clay, on Tuesday.

Clay had repeatedly asked the student to take off music headphones, and then pulled them off his head-- that's when he pushed her down.

He's charged with a misdemeanor, simple battery.

Just this year the Dougherty County School system adopted a tougher policy on student violence against teachers. The student will go before a school tribunal hearing and will likely either be expelled or sent to the alternative school.
