It was the last day of school at Burnside Elementary School in Somerset... and for a group of kindergartner, first and second graders it was also a day to receive awards gathered throughout the year.

it appears one grandfather however took it too personally when his grandson did not get the appropriate award in his eyes.

Sheriff Todd Wood says his office got a call around 11:30 this morning that a man slapped a teacher after the award ceremony.

According to the sheriff there were many students, parents, and visitors who were witness to the assault, saying this shouldn't be the last memory these kids take with them on summer break.

63 year old Marion Flynn is now in the Pulaski County Jail charged with 3rd degree assault. If convicted he could face one to five years in jail.
