Dalton student charged with assaulting pregnant teacher after throwing cell phone

DALTON, GA (Times Free Press) -

A Dalton, GA, high school student grabbed his phone during English class, chucked it, smashed it and went to jail Wednesday.

The Whitfield County Sheriff's Office charged 17-year-old Ruendy Martinez, of a Lillian Drive address, with simple assault against a public school system employee, disrupting public school and disorderly conduct. The teenager remained in jail Thursday in lieu of a bond of $2,500.

Martinez got into trouble Wednesday afternoon in 25-year-old Hannah Joseph Oliver's English class, according to a sheriff's office incident report. Oliver's support teacher, 34-year-old Amie Daves Wood, then took away Martinez's phone.

At the end of class, Wood planned to take Martinez's phone to the front office. But the boy told Wood that he kept money tucked into the back of the phone, so she let him open it up, the report states. She later told school resource officer Brian Dyer there was no money inside.
