CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)- Hamilton County Sessions Court Judge Bob Moon sentenced a Red Bank High School student/athlete to 30 days in jail on charges of Assault and Disorderly Conduct.

Corey Davis, 18, who played basketball for Red Bank is charged with assault on a fellow student and assistant principal John Pierce, who was trying to break up the two students.

The incident took place on March 11 on the second floor of the school gym, a few minutes before first period classes.  School Resource Officer Tim Mann said in his report that Davis was in a fight with another student, a juvenile.  Mr. Pierce intervened, and the other student started throwing punches, striking Mr. Pierce.  Davis began to punch and kick at the other student, causing both the student and Mr. Pierce to fall to the floor.  Davis continued kicking and throwing punches at both the other parties. 

While Mr. Pierce regained his footing and had both students by the head, teacher Michael "Bumper" Reese came to the scene, restraining the younger student.  Davis swung at Mr. Reese, hitting him on his neck and left ear.  Officer Mann reports that students stopped and gathered rather than going on to class. 

Judge Moon has granted Corey Davis a 2 for 1 status on his 30 day sentence, meaning he will serve 15 days and pay court costs, and be on probation for 11 months and 29 days.

He is also charged with possession of a controlled substance.  This incident was off school property, and occurred on May 19.  Davis was found hiding behind a trash can on Grove Street, and officers discovered three bags of marijuana, which he said was for his personal use.  His court date on that charge is set for June 3rd.
