At first Hopkins says school officials told her Jesse assaulted the principal and they suspended him for it, but she also says they later come back to admit her son had done nothing at all.
Hopkins who wanted Holloman disciplined says instead of being fired, Holloman chose to retire at the end of the year.
This is not the first time Jesse has been suspended, but Hopkins says just because her son may be problematic at times, doesn’t give Holloman a righ to put a hand on him.
Since this story ran, parents and students have called 9 On Your Side showing their support for Principal Holloman calling him a hard-working man just doing his job. Students also wrote in to say they have never witnessed any such behavior from Mr. Holloman but have witnessed Jesse being very disrespectful and inconsiderate.
