LAKE ASBURY – Clay County authorities have arrested and charged a Middleburg teen with battery on a school employee following an incident from Feb. 22.
Dalton Michael Taylor, 12, is charged with punching teacher Amy Batchelor in her left jaw with a closed fist. The alleged battery took place after Batchelor asked Taylor to move out of the cafeteria lunch line where he was not supposed to be at the time. When Taylor refused to cooperate, he then cursed at the teacher who then made a second attempt to move him from the lunch line and return where he was supposed to be.
According to the police report, Batchelor and another undisclosed person "grabbed the defendant on both sides and he suddenly turned around and punched her on the left side of her lower jaw with closed fist."
Taylor was booked at the CCSO Middleburg sub-station and then transported to a youth detention center in Jacksonville.
