A Gainesville man didn’t make it through his first day as a substitute teacher in a local middle school classroom, officials said.
Clindon Thomas Middleton, 29, was arrested Nov. 1 after he allegedly grabbed a student by the wrist and twisted the boy’s arm behind him, Gainesville police spokesman Kevin Holbrook told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Middleton was also accused of inappropriate contact with a second boy at Gainesville Middle School.
Nov. 1 was Middleton’s first day as a substitute and he won’t be back in the school system. He was booked into the Hall County jail on charges of simple battery and released on a $5,000 bond, Holbrook said.
