Athens, GA – A teacher has resigned following a peculiar incident with a Taser outside of a bar, according to the Athens Banner-Herald.
Meredith Grayson Watson was arrested by police after he was caught standing outside of an establishment called the Roadhouse with a Taser. The 44-year-old middle school teacher allegedly pretended the device was his penis. Whenever someone would walk by, he would discharge the weapon.
As a result of his unusual behavior, Watson has been charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication. His bosses didn’t hesitate to accept his resignation.
“He is no longer with us. After the incident, he submitted his resignation,” explained Sherri Davis-Viniard, director of public relations for the Newton County school system. “He did it right after he was arrested for this incident.”
Indian Creek Middle School allegedly pretended the Taser was his penis while hanging around outside of the aforementioned bar. According to the Covington News, one bartender at the Roadhouse called the police after Watson was spotted using the device inside the establishment. The suspect was sitting at the bar when police arrived.
The bartender explained to police that the middle school teacher arrived at the bar with his wife. However, the woman soon left after the couple got into an argument about “him being high and that he up in jail.”
Once Watson was left to his own devices, he soon wandered outside and pulled down his pants. It was around this time that he began pretending the Taser was his penis. Needless to say, nobody was amused by his antics.
“[Watson] cooperated, but his actions were very slow and he was unsteady on his feet. His breath smelled of an alcoholic beverage and his speech was slurred. He appeared to be very intoxicated and under the
influence of drugs,” the police report explained.
