Shady Spring, W.Va. (AP) -- A Shady Spring high school security guard has been temporarily suspended after a parent alleged that he assaulted her son.
Raleigh County secondary education director Nelson Spencer says school officials are investigating the allegation.
The guard wasn't identified because it's a personnel issue.
Lisa Rose alleges that the guard threw her 15-year-old son against a school building twice and then held the boy on the ground with his foot.
