In a story published by the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, on September 12th, a student at the Edgewood Student Services Center attempted leaving the class to call his mother about a ride home when he was stopped by Bryant Mosley,who was there on behalf of Mentoring and Behavioral Services, a contract service provider, to the Muscogee County School District.
Attorney Renee Tucker who is representing the boy and his mother says at some point the school’s assistant principal Eddie Powell witnessed the altercation, yet no school officials contacted the boy’s mother. Instead they put him on a bus and sent him home, though at one point the school’s attorney mentioned calling an ambulance.
The boy’s mom said she noticed something was wrong when he came home that day and discovered his knee was out of place. Since then he has had four surgeries. His amputation due to the nerve damage in his leg took place yesterday at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta at Egleston. Tucker says the boy will definitely undergo counseling.
Edgewood Student Services Center is an alternative school for students with behavioral problems, but this is its first incident of this sort.
