Williamson County Schools Superintendent Mike Looney was charged with one count of simple assault and turned himself in yesterday, The Tennessean reports. According to police, Looney acted in an “aggressive” manner and “attempted to intervene” with police on the scene at Franklin High School. Officers were responding to a report that a student was having a psychological emergency. The school district said via statement that the charge is without merit, which Looney echoed in a statement of his own. “I completely deny the allegations and have faith that the legal process will result in a positive resolution,” Looney said.
