Fifteen-year-old Kristoff John was running late for school at George Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School in Brooklyn, New York, when he tried to swipe his card through the secured entrance.
When that didn’t work, the teen tried to push through. At that point, he was grabbed by shop teacher and security dean, Stephan Hudson, 39 and when Kristoff tried to pull away, the teacher brutally beat him. Now the teen’s mother, Diane John, is suing the city for $5.5 millon, reports the NY Daily News.
John says that she received a call from Hudson during which he claimed to have been attacked by her son. To avoid the teen getting into trouble, however, he was willing to “graciously settle it quietly.”
Kristoff stands at 5’3, and weighs approximately 115 pounds. Hudson weighs 300 pounds.
