A county tax hike is funding the PreK program. It was to start Monday, but Hurricane Florence caused Charlotte offices to close and workers needed more time to get teachers ready and find students to fill the classrooms.
Brad Gibson, 52, is charged with six counts of indecent liberties with a student and three counts of indecent liberties with a minor. Gibson, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, is a JROTC instructor at Independence High School.
The incident happened before 5:30 a.m. Friday at a gas station on Lawyers Road. The 22-year-old victim said a man got into her vehicle, pulled out a weapon and forced her to drive off. He then sexually assaulted her.
The incident was captured on cell phone video. It was posted on social media and people criticized what they saw. Some believe officers went too far when smashing the window. CMPD sent out a statement to explain what happened.
