CLINTON, Okla. (AP) — School officials in Clinton say a fifth grader’s allegation that he was forcibly held down by two students who cut his hair in a school bathroom has been shown by video evidence to be untrue.
Superintendent Tyler Bridges told The Associated Press on Friday that video which school officials reviewed as part of an internal investigation didn’t support the student’s claim.
The student initially told his family he was he was held face down by two students in the bathroom and that one of them cut off several inches of his hair.
Bridges said Clinton police also are investigating the allegation.
