AYNOR, S.C. (WMBF) – Horry County Schools has placed a middle school teacher on leave after she was accused of assaulting a student.

An incident report obtained by WMBF News through a Freedom of Information Act request shows that the school administration at Aynor Middle School brought the incident to the school resource officer’s attention.

The document claims that Alexandria Wylie threw a ball at a number of students.

An arrest warrant also alleges that on Nov. 9, Wylie grabbed a student by the arm and pushed her, causing her to fall.

Wylie was arrested on Nov. 22 and charged with third-degree assault and battery. She was released from jail that same day on a $1,087 bond.

The school district stated that Wylie was placed on administrative leave with pay on Nov. 15.

She has been a theater teacher at Aynor Middle School since 2017.
