WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — The former dean of students at Wyoming High School accused of assaulting a student pleaded no contest.
Rueben Riley pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault and battery. He was sentenced to six months of probation and has to pay $935 in fines, according to court documents.
Records show Riley pleaded no contest to the charges because of possible civil liability.
School surveillance video obtained by 24 Hour News 8 shows Riley taking a disruptive sophomore out of a classroom on Jan. 26. The video shows them struggle in the hallway until Riley pushes the 15-year-old into a gymnasium, where he throws the teen to the ground.
Riley, who was a former NFL and University of Michigan football player, was fired the day after the dispute.
