According to the A-Blast, AHS Principal Vincent Randazzo notified parents about the situation April 5 in an automated phone message. The messages states: “. . . One of our teachers was served with an arrest warrant this week by Fairfax County police and charged with one misdemeanor count of assault. The arrest was in connection with an incident involving one of our students. The teacher has been removed from the classroom and placed on administrative leave. This is an unfortunate episode and certainly is not indicative of the wonderfully talented and professional staff we have assembled at Annandale High School. . . . “
Records from the Fairfax County General District Court confirm that the incident took place March 12 and that Perry was arrested April 5 and charged with assault, a misdemeanor. An adjudicatory heading has been scheduled for May 15.
