Dad headbutted teacher after being called into school over kid's behaviour | The Sun
A YOB dad headbutted his daughter's headteacher after being called in to take her home for bad behaviour, a court heard.
Shaun Pattyson, 27, and his partner arrived at Chesterton Community Sports College in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, to collect their daughter after the school sent her home.
But while head teacher Robert Swindells was chatting to Pattyson's partner, the dad approached the veteran teacher, squared up, then headbutted him.
He collapsed to the floor before the vile dad launched a savage attack – punching and kicking the Mr Swindells in the May 9 horror.
Prosecutor Emma Thompson told how the girl had been behaving badly for some time and was swearing at teachers during lessons.
After her parents had been called in, the child allegedly went to the front entrance and "began being rude", StokeSentinel reported.

Within 10 minutes the child's parents arrived and the mother shouted at the child to get a phone – which the child went to collect.
But Miss Thompson added how Pattyson suddenly "appeared and squared up to the headteacher".
Speaking at North Staffordshire Justice Centre, she added: "The headteacher could not remember what he said to him but the defendant was swearing at him before head-butting him.
"It connected with the right side of his face just below his right eye."

"He immediately fell to the floor as a result of the headbutt."
Mr Swindells – a teacher of 25-years' experience – says the yob dad proceeded to kick and punch him for "approximately 10 seconds".
When shown CCTV by cops, Pattyson said he attacked Mr Swindells "because he thought the headteacher was a bully".
He admitted to headbutting and punching Mr Swindells – who has been a head teacher for ten years – but denied kicking him.
Representing himself, the defendant said: "I did not kick him. If this is on CCTV, show it to prove I did not kick him."
