Cane Ridge High School Assistant Principal James Reese is on paid administrative leave after he violently took a student to the floor and restrained her during a fight in the gym on January 31. After Scoop: Nashville obtained a video of the incident, Metro Nashville Schools released a statement that reads, “a fight occurred in the gym at approximately 9:05 a.m. on Tuesday, January 31. Assistant Principal James Reese came into the gym and stopped the fight with the help of a substitute teacher. He was attempting to escort one of the girls out of the gym when the other one involved in the fight moved passed a substitute teacher and pushed them, knocking them to the floor. The AP got up and took that girl to the floor and restrained her to stop the fight from re-occurring.”
The AP has been placed on paid administrative leave while the district investigates the incident. Administrative leave is a routine standard operating practice for the district when an employee is under investigation, and it does not indicate corrective or disciplinary action by MNPS.
