Police: Garden City Teacher Made Up Assault Story

KSCB News - November 6, 2009 12:00 am

Garden City police say a teacher made up a story about being stabbed in the leg, beaten and robbed in his classroom.

Garden City Police Sgt. Michael Reagle says Michael Blanks given a $300 ticket Wednesday for falsely reporting a crime.

Banks, a teacher at Alta Brown Elementary School, told police on Aug. 9 that two Hispanic males forced their way into the school and beat him and stabbed him in the leg.

Reagle says police now believe Blanks was injured after he fell off of a desk while stapling things to a wall in his classroom. He says it’s unclear why Blanks fabricated the story.

School superintendent Rick Atha says police and school investigations are continuing and no disciplinary action has been taken.
