Sanders and other administrators and teachers were meeting and Jefferson said Sanders got upset that some student athletes are not doing well in school academically.
Jefferson told police that he told the suspect not to speak to him that way, according to a police report.
“He walked back to the back of the classroom to where I was sitting in a desk,” Jefferson told our Tanya Eiserer this morning. “As he got closer to me, I stood up because he was kind of standing over me and he just kind of kept talking to me and at me and then he just grabbed me by my throat and kind of threw me to the ground. Some people had to get him off of me.”
Jefferson said he went to the hospital to check on any injuries he might have sustained during the incident.
