NORMAN, Oklahoma -

A teenager from Norman says she was grabbed by the throat and slammed to the ground by an administrator at her school Friday.  Now, her mother wants the administrator fired. 

Jennifer Bailey, 14, still has marks on her back, days after she said an administrator at Community Works in Norman slammed her to the concrete giving her a concussion. 

She said it all started when she told a teacher that another student brought a knife to school and planned to stab someone. 

She said she didn’t want to be in the classroom after turning in the student so she tried to leave and the administrator wouldn’t let her.   

“He grabs me and then bear hugs me, and of course, I don't play that so I start struggling," she said.

Other staffers pinned her down until she calmed down, Bailey said.

"I got up. They let me up and then I swung at the dude and I hit him and then he took me by my throat, kicked my legs out and threw me to the ground. My body hit the ground, ” Bailey said. “He got on top of me and I didn’t know what to do."

Bailey’s mother, Gail Bailey, admits her daughter should not have hit the administrator. 

"You should know to put your hands on a child to control them better than what this guy did. To take this young lady and slam her on the ground the way he did it is totally ridiculous," Gail Bailey said.

On Tuesday, Jennifer Bailey was kicked out of school. Her mother said the wrong person is being punished. 

"For him to put his hands on her the way he did, the dude needs to lose his job and he does need some jail time," Gail Bailey said.

News 9 spoke with school administrators. They said, out of respect for their client’s confidentiality, they will not be commenting.
