PCSSD security guard fired after reportedly hitting student

Mills High School security guard Ken Keys is fired from his job after school leaders say he hit a student.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Mills High School security guard Ken Keys is fired from his job after school leaders say he hit a student.

In a recent report, FOX16 news told you about an incident involving Nickolas Terry. He says Keys punched him in the stomach while he waited for an escort to the bathroom.

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

Thursday, the human resource director says Keys actions were inappropriate.

"We don't allow security guards to physically put their hands on students unless it is to protect a student or protect an employee of the district," said HR director Paul Brewer.

The tenth grader's mom says she is pleased with the new developments.

"I'm very happy that something has been done because he didn't need to be around any children with the mentality he has," said Suzette Tyler.

The district also confirms there are now new reports of sexual misconduct involving Keys.

"There were some accusations made that he had either come on to some of the girls in high school or maybe had an inappropriate relationship. Now that has been turned over to police," said Brewer.
