A school employee who is accused of punching her boss in the face at a Southington school and throwing a cup of coffee at him after she was approached for being late to work has been ordered to stay away from the victim.
Melinda Chantea Fisher, 29, of Wallingford, has been charged with third-degree assault and second-degree breach of peace after police said she assaulted her boss.
On Thursday, April 19, Fisher, a district-wide technology assistant, allegedly attacked her supervisor after she was approached about being late to work at the South End Elementary School on Noble Drive just after 8:30 a.m.
Police said Fisher punched the victim in the face, threw coffee at him, chased him, kicked him on the ground and tried banging his head against a wall.
Staff members who saw what was happening intervened and pulled Fisher off the supervisor. The victim was transported to the hospital and officials said in court that Fisher has been suspended.
"I'm not the story," she said as she was leaving court, but did not stop and speak with reporters.
When Fisher was arrested, bond was set at $1,500 and she was released. She is due back in court on June 3.
