Local Mom Wants Answers After Her Son Was Punched At School

After her 14-year-old son was hit in the head during lunch at school, a Williamson County mother is asking for answers.

She spoke with News Channel 2 WKRN and told them her son’s friend recorded the incident on his phone, which you can see below. It happened last week at Heritage Middle School in Thompson’s Station. The eighth grader suffered a concussion.

She added in her report to News 2 that her son has been the victim of bullying, which led to the incident.

“My son was upset at the bully because he had been calling some of his friends names and so he tried to squirt water on him. The bully came over and tried to take my son’s water bottle,” the mother explained.

She continued, “My son continued to stay sitting down and the bully started to walk away and then he turned around and clocked my son in the head. Now, I don’t feel like he is safe at school.”

News 2 contacted Williamson County Schools but a spokesperson said the district can’t comment on disciplinary issues.
