Boy says PCSSD security punched him in stomach

LITTLE ROCK, AR-- Suzzette Tyler leaves the doctor's office with her son Thursday after he started complaining about pains in his stomach. She believes the complications came from the actions of a security guard at Mills High School.

"I'm very upset. I'm very, very upset," said Tyler.

Nickolas Terry says he waited in class Wednesday for an escort to the bathroom. He says when the security guard got there, the confrontation began.

"I push the door open. His hand was on the door and his other hand hit me in my stomach. So I started falling to the ground, caught myself on the table," said Terry.

The incident report says Terry then went to the principal's office. At the same time, the officer followed Terry cursing and persuading the tenth grader to hit him back. The boy says the guard eventually stopped.

But he doesn't understand what prompted the initial confrontation.

"He said I was messing around with the door and playing around. But I really wasn't," said Terry.

For now, the district put the officer on leave with pay, which is standard during any investigation.
