DOVER, Del. (AP) - A middle school wrestling coach in Delaware has been fired over allegations he assaulted and pulled a gun on a student.

James McNeil has allegedly been removed from his part-time position as coach at W.T. Chipman Middle School in Kent County.

Sakeina Scott said her son had marks on his neck and body from a struggle with McNeil during a team practice. She said McNeil dragged her son to a bathroom where he brandished the gun.

Lake Forest School District Human Resources Director Travis Moorman said local police were investigating.

McNeil is also a corrections officer with the Delaware Department of Corrections and has been suspended without pay.
