School Employee Has Been Charged After Being Filmed Lifting Student By Neck [Video]

Joseph Golden III, a suspended employee of the Ranking Promise School, was filmed grabbing a 13-year-old student by the neck and dragging him down a hallway. Golden is now facing charges of endangering the welfare of a child and simple assault.

Golden’s lawyer says the incident occurred after the boy repeatedly disobeyed directions.

“This young man left class two or three times,” the lawyer said. “He returned him two or three times. And then, you know, the kid finally just says, ‘I’m gonna do what I want.'”

Even though the boy was not hurt during this, Woodland Hills officials vow to fire Golden based on the video below.
