A teacher allegedly tackled an 11-year-old girl, ripping three braids from her head during a disciplinary procedure caught on school cameras. He is on leave during police and district investigations.
Mikiea Price filed a police report with the Madison Police Department in Wisconsin after hearing from her daughter, a student at Whitehorse Middle School, about the incident that transpired on February 13, according to WISC-TV. She was “crying and her lip was cracked, bleeding and she handed me three of her braids that were pulled out from her scalp,” Price told Madison 365.
Pastor Marcus Allen, who is acting as a spokesperson on behalf of Price and her family, told Yahoo Lifestyle that acting principal Rob Mueller-Owens — a “positive behavior support coach” and reportedly a 2016 guest of the White House for his work with restorative justice — had fallen on top of the girl, according to the family’s account.
