Yeah, that doesn’t happen every day, but it did recently in the normally quite Lodi Unified School District on December 20 in a little set-to written about today in a Stockton Record piece, linked here.
Lodi Middle School Vice-Principle Lurdes Rosales called the local constabulary, the day after teacher Jon Lampachet is alleged to have “bumped” her during an altercation during a class. Lampachet was taken to the local police station, issued a misdemeanor battery citation and released. Lt. Fernando Martinez of the Lodi P D called it a minor incident.
It seems that the decision to have Lampachet arrested was an administrative one, made by school administrators, due to possible contract and union issues.
Rosales complained that Lampachet blew a whistle in her ear during a P E class and then bumped her as he passed. Rosales characterizes it as one of many acts of insubordination by Lampachet.
