TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A Tampa Bay area teacher faces charges after another teacher accused him of head-butting a student.
Tampa police report that 33-year-old William Chaney was arrested and charged Monday with child abuse and battery. He was later released on $2,500 bail.
Police say Chaney was in an AMI Kids classroom last Thursday when a 13-year-old student was “horsing around.” A report says Chaney head-butted the boy twice after the boy side the first time didn’t hurt.
Another teacher reported the incident to school officials, who reported it to authorities.
Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
