Plymouth Teacher Arrested During Anti-Bullying Week

PLYMOUTH (WWJ) – Timing could not have been worse: “Especially with the anti-bullying thing this week, I just thought this was the most contradictory thing in the world,” says a male student.

Charges against a 52-year-old Plymouth-Canton school teacher alleged to have threatened a fellow faculty member have been delayed as prosecutors are reportedly seeking access to his phone and computer records.

WWJ’s Marie Osborn reports from the school that despite the size of the high school, 6,300 students, over three high schools, it seems that everyone knew the teacher in question and that he seems universally liked.

“Yeah, he loved his students, like I’m really sad if he’s not coming back, I wish he was coming back,” says one student.

The incident has been the center of most conversations Friday.

“He would just be so nice, I’d high-five him every time I would see him in the hall, I took military history next year just to have him,” says the student.
