Idaho man accused of entering classroom and choking student

Authorities in northern Idaho have issued an arrest warrant for a man accused of entering a classroom and putting one young student into a chokehold.

The warrant signed Thursday by a Lewis County Magistrate Judge names 36-year-old Byron Scott Edwards of Reubens.

Authorities want to question Edwards about his role in an incident at Highland School in the small town of Craigmont Monday.

The guardian of a fifth-grader criticized school officials this week after she says Edwards entered a classroom, harassed children and put her grandson in a chokehold.

Jerry Peery said other parents called police after hearing what happened.

Meanwhile, Edwards is being held in the jail in neighboring Nez Perce County on a $30,000 bond. He was arrested Tuesday on a felony warrant issued out of Oregon.
