Police: 4 teachers hurt by ‘out of control’ 10-year-old boy

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Police say four teachers at a Connecticut elementary school were hurt trying to control a rampaging 10-year-old student throwing tables and chairs inside a classroom.

Administrators at the Timothy Dwight School called police at about 1 p.m. Wednesday asking for assistance with a student who was having behavioral issues.

Police say one teacher had a bruised leg and was taken to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport. A second teacher was taken to a doctor by a friend before officers arrived on the scene.

Two teachers declined medical attention.

No students were hurt. The 10-year-old boy was released to his parents’ custody.

School administrators did not comment.
