Mom says son's hand broken at Brinkley Middle School

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Twelve-year-old Tayon Williams says his dream to play football for Brinkley Middle School this year has been dashed. He says on Friday he asked to leave his classroom. The teacher refused. He left anyway, and he says the teacher, who is also a coach, kicked the door closed on his hand. He now has a broken finger and hand.

"They're gonna have to put a pin in my finger. The principal says he didn't mean to do it, but I know he did," Tayon says.

Tayon tells us he went to the office after the incident. About an hour later, his grandfather came to pick him up and took him straight to the hospital. That's when they discovered the damage to his right hand.

"Yes, I want him charged," says Lakesia Williams, Tayon's mom.

Lakesia and her sister, Tasha Williams, say they talked with the teacher and the principal on Monday.

"He said he did it, he apologized and said it was an accident," Tasha says.

But Lakesia is unhappy with the way things were handled Friday. She says the school didn't call an ambulance. And looking at the incident report, she's unsure about the investigation.

"Where it says 'others involved', there was a teacher involved but you see there's nothing checked," Tasha says, pointing to the report.

"I went to the JPS Police Department, they have their own police department, made sure the charges and incident reports were filed properly," Lakesia says.

Tayon did go back to school Monday. But he won't be able to write for a while.

Lakesia admits her son has behavior problems. He was taken out of school for a five-month evaluation earlier this year. But she never expected an incident like this to occur.

We're awaiting a comment from JPS on this incident.
