The teacher, Timothy Randall Korr, who was arrested and charged with child abuse, is now claiming the boy, Trayvon Grayson, 7, injured himself when he fell and “hit himself” on a wall.
Trayvon had a fractured jaw and had several of his teeth knocked out during the incident. Police claim Timothy threw the boy against a wall as he was taking him to the principal’s office for disciplinary reasons. And police have video footage of the beating…
The boy’s mother Lateekqua Jackson, told WBAL-TV that when she arrived at City Springs Elementary School, she found her son crying in the back of an ambulance.
“The teacher told me that he put him over his shoulder and, when he put him down, he was bleeding,” Jacksonsaid
During a news conference on Wednesday, Chief T.J. Smith said he and other officers “cringed” while viewing surveillance video of the incident.
“To watch a child be basically manhandled like a sack of potatoes is incomprehensible,” Smith told reporters. “The video does show him carrying the child and slamming him up against the wall, and it’s very difficult to watch,” Smith. “We cringed a number of times as we watched the video.”
