A Georgia teacher barricaded himself in his classroom and placed the students in the hallway. When the headmaster attempted to use his key to enter the classroom the man discharged a round.

Jesse Randal Davidson, 53, a social studies teacher in Dalton, Georgia. Shot the weapon in the empty class room sparking a standoff. The man held the classroom for nearly an hour before he was taken into custody by police. Mr. Steve Bartoo, the headmaster said the teacher made nonsensical noises as the standoff continued.

The teacher has been charged with aggravated assault, carrying a weapon on school grounds and terroristic threats, reckless conduct, possession of a gun during commission of a crime an disrupting public school.

Davidson was also the football teams public address announcer during football games.

The city of Dalton is just under 100 miles northwest of Atlanta.

Tensions have been high at schools nationwide since 17 people were killed at a Florida high school by a domestic terrorist. Dumb Donald, called to arm teachers, likely giving this man the idea, but as anyone knows to introduce a weapon into a volatile situation is a bad idea.
