High School Student Indicted for Kidnapping and Assault of Teacher

In today’s society, to say students have a lack of respect for the teacher is an understatement unfortunately.

This is especially true for North Carolina high school student Aquavis Hickman, who is accused of assaulting two teachers and will be tried as an adult.

Fox News provides more from Forsyth County District Attorney Jim O’Neill commenting on the incidents:

He said Hickman, who will be charged as an adult, faces second-degree kidnapping charges in the April 15 incident with a female teacher “by unlawfully confining and restraining her without her consent for the purpose of terrorizing her. That defendant was also indicted on that same bill for assault on a government official, that being a teacher, and finally communicating threats against that teacher.”

He said Hickman told the teacher he was going to kill her, and the “threat was made in a manner and under circumstances which would cause a reasonable person to believe that threat was likely to be carried out, and the person threatened believed it would, in fact, be carried out.”

The story goes on to discuss more charges filed against Hickman in a previous incident:

He was also indicted on the same charges for the alleged assault on the second teacher in February and was indicted on a misdemeanor count of riot based on allegations Hickman gathered with at least two others and “engaged in a public disturbance, kidnapping the second teacher in this case, attempting to fight him. This disorderly and violent conduct created a clear and present danger of injury to the victim in this case.”

Many people have taken to X to post their reactions to the incidents:

It truly is shocking to think a student could attack a teacher in this fashion, and it will continue until we as a society choose to protect those that educate the next generation.
