Cops: Grand Junction teacher had students hit tardy classmate

GRAND JUNCTION, Colorado ” A Grand Junction high school teacher is facing child abuse charges for allegedly telling students to beat up another student who was late for class.

Delta police say the incident began after 22-year-old teacher Brian Havel ordered the student to do 100 push-ups as punishment for being late. Havel then allegedly told other students to hit their fellow classmate for not completing the push-ups.

It’s unknown whether Havel still works at the high school. He has an unlisted phone number and could not be reached for comment.

He will appear in court next month.
