A mother from Portsmouth, Virginia is behind bars for assaulting an administrator at her child’s elementary school.
According to 13News Now, Tracy Lawrence was arrested and charged with assault, battery, and disorderly conduct after a disagreement with her child’s assistant principal turned violent.
The incident occurred at Lakeview Elementary School on Wednesday just before 2:30 p.m., when a resource officer was called regarding a disorderly parent in the school’s main office. Lawrence and the assistant principal were in disagreement over a final decision the administrator made about her child. Lawrence reportedly struck the assistant principal in the head, causing her to lose consciousness.
The 43-year-old is currently being held at the Portsmouth City Jail on a $10,000 bond. Her husband spoke with a judge during her court hearing this week and explained that his wife is a great mother and needs to be home with her children.
In addition to her high bond, the judge recommended Lawrence be evaluated for any possible mental or substance abuse issues. Appalled at the ruling, her family denied she had problems with drugs or mental health.
Thankfully, no children witnessed the altercation.
