BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The Secret Service questioned an Alabama teacher after school officials said he used an hypothetical example of shooting at the president to teach geometric angles.
The teacher at Corner High School in Birmingham was not identified Tuesday by the Jefferson County school district.
Senior Joseph Brown told the Birmingham News that the teacher "was talking about angles and said, 'If you're in this building, you would need to take this angle to shoot the president.'"
The Secret Service interviewed the teacher after authorities were notified, determined there was not a credible threat and closed the investigation.
Superintendent Phil Hammonds says the teacher showed extremely poor judgment but there are no plans to fire him.
