The principal of Sun City Elementary School in Bossier City has been charged with simple battery after allegedly placing a trash can over a student's head.
Bossier City police charged Principal Curtis J. Malncon, 59, of Benton, this afternoon with simple battery. Melancon is accused of placing an empty 32-gallon plastic trash can over a student at Sun City Elementary School on Tuesday after the boy was sent to his office.
The child’s mother filed a complaint with Bossier City police on Wednesday after Melancon contacted the boy’s father the night before to inform him of what had happened. An investigation indicated Melancon placed the trash can over the boy for several seconds before taking it off of him.
Police issued Melancon a citation for simple battery after questioning him Friday afternoon at police headquarters.
