Odom Academy mom claims principal injured her son
BEAUMONT - An Odom Academy mother is asking that a principal be held responsible after her son received injuries at school at the hands of the principal, according to the mother.
Rose Charles says principal Tillie Hickman snatched her son's phone and in the process Hickman jerked the child's arm on March 4.
Charles took her son to the emergency room, and a discharge report says the six-grader had a sprained wrist, muscle strain and arm pain.
The boy's arm is still in a sling. He's also seeing a physical therapist for rehab for his injuries.
The district is on spring break this week, so stay with KFDM News for updates to this story next week when school officials return.
