PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky elementary school teacher
has been suspended and her husband arrested following an altercation involving a shotgun on school grounds.
Police in Paducah say a group of children were playing at McNabb
Elementary School Saturday evening when a boy ran home after being
tackled in a football game.
The Paducah Sun reports that the boy's father, Wallace O. McCoy Sr., went to the playground and chased several children in his truck. Police say McCoy fought with two adults and pointed a shotgun at them.
McCoy's wife, Kem A. Brown-McCoy, also drove to the school and
fought with another adult.
Police charged Wallace McCoy Sr. with wanton endangerment and
possession of a weapon on school property; Kem Brown-McCoy was
charged with assault. Brown-McCoy is a first-grade teacher at McNabb.
