A teacher throttled his headmaster after he was sacked for chasing a colleague with a pair of scissors, a court has heard.Whoops!
If he’d been a pupil, he probably wouldn’t have had more than a day’s detention for that, mind…
Arek Bielecki, 33, brandished the blades at fellow teacher Michael Thompson before head-butting him during a staff meeting on January 4.And that proved to be a mistake:
After being dismissed, he returned to the Monteagle Primary School in Dagenham, Essex, on March 12.
He was allowed back in and headed straight for the office of headmaster Mr Nicholas Munns.
Prosecutor Michelle Fawcett said: ‘As he sat down, Mr Bielecki turned towards him and said: “I’m going to kill you”.Luckily, this was witnessed by some teachers, who came to their head’s assistance.
‘At the same time the defendant lunged forward and grabbed Mr Munns by the throat and began to squeeze tightly. ’
Terrified staff had to force their way into the office to rescue Mr Munns.Open and shut case?
Bielecki, of Dagenham, Essex, denies affray, actual bodily harm and making a threat to kill.Can’t wait to see his defence.
Hope it’s a bit better than ‘But sir, he started it!’…
