PELHAM, GA (WALB) -

Supporters of a former Pelham teacher, accused of assaulting his principal, came out Tuesday to support him.

They spoke to the Pelham School board saying former Pelham Elementary School teacher Bobby Edwards, Junior is a good man.

He was arrested last month after police say he hit his principal and assistant principal as they tried to keep him from attacking a parent during a heated conference.

Edwards' supporters say there's more to the story, but others say there's no excuse for his actions.

Edwards resigned after the altercation.

He's charged with two counts of battery, simple assault and disruption of public school.
