Kevin Pope, a Bronx charter-school teacher has been arrested by the New York Police Department for assaulting a student who spent $4,000 which he allocated for the purchase of Marijuana.

According to the New York Post, Pope was connected to the unidentified teen after he asked his class about where he could get the psychoactive drug in large quantity.

The teacher reportedly gave him the sum of $4,000 after the student promised to help him get the merchandise from his contact in Manhattan.

Unfortunately, the amount needed for the purchase was $7,000.

The student however did not give report of this to his teacher and chose to spend the money instead.

Pope, who is a science teacher at the John V. Lindsay Wildcat Academy in Hunts Point allegedly threatened the boy, telling him that he would sexually assault his mother if the money was not refunded.

“I will kill you if I don’t get my money!” Pope allegedly told the student after pummeling him. “I want my money in a month!”, he said.

The agitator was scheduled for an arraignment in court on Friday, September 23, 2016.
