We have more information in the case of a Leon High School principal accused of grabbing a student, and leaving a mark.
News 3 has received a copy of an eyewittness's written statement about the incident.
In the statement, the High School Secretary writes that she saw Principal David Jones "grab the student by his left shoulder and try to hold him."
She goes on to say the student tried to jerk his shoulder away, but Mr. Jones told him not to. Later in the statement, she writes "at no time during the episode did the student raise his voice or speak rudely or disrespectfully . Mr Jones simply lost control."
The Leon ISD Superintendent received the same statement. It was one of four he received from witnesses about the February incident.
Principal David Jones is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the county attorney's investigation.
