Trustee files complaint against parent Allison K. Sampité | Sat, Apr 21 2012 12:00 PM

Chula Vista police were called Monday night to the Sweetwater Union High School District administration building following alleged verbal threats made by a parent against board member John McCann.

The incident followed a regular board meeting sometime after 10 p.m.

McCann said that after doing an interview with a news station, he began approaching members of the public and shaking their hands. He said when he approached Stewart Payne to shake his hand Payne made an “aggressive statement.”

“Mr. Payne said he was gonna knock me out,” McCann said. “He clenched his fist to hit me and a security guard stepped in between us.”

Payne said that never happened and said McCann approached him several times, insisting Payne shake his hand.

“I stepped backwards and refused his request again… After retreating at least three, probably four times from him, I stopped and instructed him not to continue to advance toward me,” Payne said. “I never touched John McCann and I never invaded his personal space.”

This man has to be the most disillusion person on the planet. He must have little people talking to him in his head. He is a disgrace to Sweetwater's board. He is the cry baby that when he doesn't get his way he pouts and this is what this is. I wasn't there but know several people that were and it did not go down the way McCann calculations went. Wow, the man didn't shake my hand! So I am going to make up a big story of lies. Can you go to jail filing a false statement?
