BROUGHT TO YOU BY

“On February 12, 2020, the Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools district was notified by the Gahanna Police Department of an inappropriate video. Our understanding is that some students have viewed and shared private and explicit content involving one of our high school teachers. We believe this is an isolated incident, and it is being addressed.  

We are taking this seriously, cooperating with the police investigation and conducting our own internal review. As a precautionary measure, we have placed the teacher on paid administrative leave while the investigation proceeds. As always, we are committed to providing a safe learning environment for our students, and we have responded with that objective in mind.  

Because this is an ongoing personnel matter, there will be no further comment at this time.”

A local dog is saved after being stabbed in the head with a knife.

10TV reports a man called police after allegedly being attacked by two dogs. He told police he fended off one with a bottle and stabbed another with a knife.

Both dogs were taken to the Franklin County Dog Shelter & Adoption Center for care. The male dog, who was hit with the bottle, was released from the shelter without injury. The female dog, who was stabbed in the head with the knife, underwent a successful surgery.

Kaye Persinger, shelter director, told 10TV it's a "miracle" that the female dog survived the injuries she sustained.

According to Persinger, the female dog will be designated as dangerous despite her showing no signs of aggression at the shelter. Persinger even called the dog "sweet."

Persinger told 10TV she is confident the dog won't hurt anyone in the future.

The man who claimed he was attacked had small puncture wounds but refused treatment.
