A Georgia teen who assaulted a principal while drunk and threated to return to the school and kill everybody is now in the care of a mental facility.
According to reports from WSB-TV 17-year-old Ty Holder was bailed out of jail after the judge lowered his bond. The teen was previously being held without bond for threatening to shoot up Walton High School.
Cellphone video obtained by the outlet shows the moment Holder kicked an assistant principal in the groin on August 6 after the administrator confronted him about having alcohol on school grounds. Officials with the Cobb County School District Police Department said the teenager had a water bottle filled with booze and showed up to class drunk.
During the altercation, police said Holder made specific threats “to get a gun and come back to the school” to kill the assistant principal and a school resource officer.
Holder blew a .216 blood-alcohol level, nearly three times the legal limit. A school police officer who restrained the teen during the incident wrote in his report that Holder did “kick me several times,” and also “spit on me several times.”
Walton HS officials sent home a letter alerting parents to the incident, which several students witnessed.
“That situation has been resolved and student involved is in the care of medical professionals,” the letter read. “The school day is proceeding as it normally does and our community is hard at work teaching and learning”
