Mayor accused of battery at high school where he works

Mother of student sparks misdemeanor investigation

OXNARD, Calif. - Oxnard Mayor Tim Flynn has been accused of battery, but not at city hall. Flynn is a teacher at Pacifica High in Oxnard.

The mother of female student accused Flynn of battering her child during a classroom dispute.

To avoid any conflict of interest Oxnard police asked the Sheriff's Department to investigate. Deputies say battery is a form of physical contact. In this case, it could result in a misdemeanor charge or be dismissed.

Flynn returned to his classroom this week after missing several days last week.

The mayor and school district officials could not be reached for comment.
