Warren fill-in teacher suspended for spanking

Police arrested Willard K-8 School fill-in teacher John Jerome on an assault charge Friday after he allegedly spanked a child and caused a minor injury Tuesday.

According to Warren City Schools Superintendent Michael Notar, two boys were fighting in gym class when Jerome separated the two and spanked one of them.

Notar said Jerome is not allowed to work in the Willard K-8 building and that he informed the Trumbull County Educational Service Center about the incident.
