A Booneville woman was arrested after a disturbance at Hills Chapel School on March 22, according to Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar.
“When deputies arrives they determined that a teacher had been physically assaulted by a parent,” Tolar said in a press release.
Deputies arrested Angela Nunley, 35, and she now faces charges of simple assault on a teacher. Simple assault on school personnel is a felony crime and carries up to 5 years in prison.
Nunley had an initial appearance before Justice County Judge Debra Moore and was given a $5,000 bond. Nunley is currently free on bond.
The teacher was treated and released from a local hospital.
Nunley’s case will be presented to the next grand jury.
