N. Idaho Parents: Man Entered Class, Choked Boy
CRAIGMONT, Idaho (AP) - Parents say a man in north central Idaho caused a chaotic altercation at a local school where fifth graders said he choked at least one student and tripped and verbally abused others.
KLEW-TV (http://tinyurl.com/c4pxov3) reports the incident at Highland School in Craigmont happened on Monday, but parents - not school officials - ultimately called police to report what happened.
The man, whose son attends the school, was taken into custody on separate, unrelated charges.
On Thursday, a dispatcher for the Lewis County Sheriff's Office declined to release the man's name to The Associated Press and Sheriff Brian Brokop didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
One mother, Tammy Miller, said her 11-year-old daughter described a chaotic classroom scene.
Highland School District officials say they're investigating but offered few details.
