Mother says a suspension for a teacher is not enough and he needs to be fired after the educator was caught on video holding a wrench right before he rammed the student into a wall and put him in a chokehold


Mother says a suspension for a teacher is not enough and he needs to be fired after the educator was caught on video holding a wrench right before he lunges at her son, ramming him into a wall. The teacher then puts the student in a chokehold. The video was shared on social media. The unfortunate mother says she is working on getting justice for her son and believes a suspension for the teacher is not enough. The boy’s mother said that her son went to the bathroom and the incident occurred because it wasn’t break time. Break time was at 8:45, but it was 8:30.

The mother from Tennessee, Kimberly Wortham, told FOX13 that she wasn’t aware that much had happened until she finally watched the video. The unfortunate mother says she is working on getting justice for her son and believes a suspension for the teacher is not enough.

The mother said the video, that was shared on social media, shows a a teacher at the Southwest Career & Technology Center lunge at her son, ramming him into a wall.

Kimberly Wortham reportedly told FOX13: More than a suspension needs to be done. He needs to be fired. He needs to be behind bars. As I’m thinking, I’m getting angrier and angrier. They made one of the little boys delete the video and told him that if it got out, they would give him 180 days.”

Per reports, in the VIDEO, the teacher and the student are standing next to each other. The teacher, who students refer to as Mr. Jennings, then rushes the student and then puts him in a chokehold.

Other students are heard urging the teacher to back off multiple times. 

The teacher is also seen with what appears to be a wrench in his hand, FOX13 reports.

Kimberly Wortham also said: The principal at the vo-tech told me the teacher had a wrench and told me that my son was in a headlock, but he didn’t tell me it was to that extent to where the man was in his face.”

In the video, the teacher is reportedly heard saying: “He’s lucky I didn’t bust him in the ***** head with it.”

The boy’s mother reportedly said that her son went to the bathroom and the incident reportedly occurred because it wasn’t break time. Break time was at 8:45, but it was 8:30, the mother said.

According to FOX13, someone called their newsroom and said that he was the teacher in the video – Christopher Jennings. The caller reportedly said that there’s more to the video.

The teacher also said that students allegedly try to ‘bait educators’ into cursing and fighting with them. Jennings also said that this student had walked up on him several times with clenched fists in a threatening manner and that he had backed off and even asked the principal to remove the boy from his class.

Unfortunately, by the time the school officials arrived, everything had already happened, Jennings reportedly said.

Jennings said that he used the wrench in class and didn’t have it because of the student.

But, when FOX13 asked him why did he said: “He’s lucky I didn’t bust him in the ***** head with it”, he reportedly said that he overreacted when another student asked him about it.

The teacher is on leave until MSCS officials finish investigating this incident.

The school district released a statement and said that they are aware of the incident and are investigating.

The student’s mother told FOX13 that she’s in the process of filing charges against Jennings.
