Police: Principal threatens to knock student’s teeth “down your throat”

PITTSBURGH (AP) – A western Pennsylvania high school principal has been placed on leave after a 14-year-old special education student produced a recording of threatening comments by the principal.

In the recording first shared with KDKA-TV Woodland Hills High School Principal Kevin Murray threatens to punch the teen and knock his teeth “down your throat.” At one point, the principal is also heard telling the student, “When we go to court it’s your word versus mine, and mine wins every time.”

Murray didn’t immediately respond to an email Wednesday and couldn’t immediately be located by phone.

District Superintendent Alan Johnson says the school doesn’t condone the language, but wants to investigate the surrounding circumstances of the remarks and the recording,

The student’s attorney says his client made the recording because no one believed his claims.
