A Carver High School student was arrested Friday after the student allegedly hit a teacher.
Around 1:15 p.m., a school security guard was called to a classroom regarding the incident. A Columbus police report states the student, a juvenile whose identity was not released, pushed and hit the 51-year-old female teacher with closed fists.
The educator sustained swelling to the left side of her face, police said. The student was arrested.
Valerie Fuller, director of communications for the Muscogee County School District, said Saturday evening the teacher was “OK to my knowledge.”
