Police: Mom struck school officer with SUV over pick-up policy

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A mom is accused of striking a school resource officer with her SUV Wednesday morning after she broke pick-up line protocol.

Police reported Toya Kenner, 31, hit the West End Middle School officer with her vehicle as the officer was standing in the parking lot directing parents away from the lot where only school buses are allowed to drop students off.

According to an affidavit, the officer was speaking to a parent in another car when Kenner attempted to drive her 2005 Nissan Armada around the officer.

The officer reportedly stepped away from the other car and put out her hand for Kenner to stop. Kenner allegedly cut her wheels toward the officer and accelerated, striking the officer and causing her to spin in front of the other car.

Kenner then reportedly sped out of the parking lot and away from the scene.

The officer suffered no visible injuries.

Police reported Kenner had a previous altercation with the resource officer in December 2014. In that incident, Kenner was allegedly late to pick up her child from a basketball game.

During a conversation with the officer and assistant principal about proper pick-up policies, Kenner reportedly became angry and slammed on her accelerator, causing the officer to jump backward to avoid being struck by Kenner’s vehicle.

Kenner was warned she would not be able to drive on school property if it happened again.

Kenner was booked in the Metro jail on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and reckless driving. Her bond was set at $102,500.
