VACAVILLE (AP) — A Vacaville teacher is seeking a restraining order against a middle school student she accuses of threatening and purposely tripping her during class.
Vaca Pena Middle School teacher Julie Davis said she is worried the 13-year-old student will seek retaliation after being suspended for five days following the Nov. 15 incident.
The 62-year-old Davis filed papers in Solano County Superior Court last week seeking an order forcing the student to stay at least 10 yards away from her.
Davis said the boy threatened to punch her and tripped her after refusing her requests to move his chair, which was blocking a classroom aisle.
She said she fell and suffered a broken arm and dislocated shoulder.
The Vacaville Reporter said a hearing on the request is scheduled for February.
