Teacher knocks over child, gets arrested
Police have arrested a Georgia teacher after surveillance video appears to show her knocking a special needs student to the floor in a school hallway.
71-year-old Amelia Stripling turned herself in to police Friday afternoon. The incident occurred at the Tift County Pre-K Center in Tifton on March 17.
The child’s mother, Sarah Patterson, tells the station that the teacher thrust her knee into the little boy’s back, causing him to fall forward near a classroom door.
