GREENUP COUNTY, KY- Angel Nelson and her family just moved to Wurtland October 1st.
"The fact that my son is not able to fully verbalize what he went through means that we must fight that much harder for all kids, but especially the kids who can not speak for themselves", the upset mother wroteon Facebook.
Abrams is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday, according to Greenup court records.
Along with the posting the video, the mother also explained her son was diagnosed with "autism, ADHD, PTSD, anxiety and depression". Outbursts can happen and the boy's parents believed his IEP (Individualized Education Program) would accomodate him.
The incident happened in October. "It was so hard for me to watch", she told WSAZ on Monday. "He didn't do anything wrong". At different points in the video, the boy is either lying on his back or sliding on his knees. The teacher pulls him by one arm at times, and both of his arms at other times.
Nelson said the same day her son was dragged, she had X-rays taken of his wrist and tailbone.
'She claimed she was preventing him from harming himself but it doesn't line up with his actions from the video.
