COLUMBUS, GA (CBS46) -

A fiery school board meeting to discuss a 13-year-old allegedly body slammed by his educator five times, ends with one board member refusing to go into a closed session to talk about the issue.

”I am going to have my say one way or the other.” Said Frank Myers, a Muscogee County School board member.

“As a board member, I’m being told I can't talk about an issue,” he adds.

Muscogee County Schools Superintendent Dr. David Lewis called the board meeting, in part, to discuss the incident pertaining to the teen who had his leg amputated, his attorney says, as a result of the September 12 incident.

Myers refused to go into the closed session.

“…for the purpose of letting some sunshine in this room and letting people know what's going on while protecting the rights of this young man who will never have his leg again,” he said.

For the first time we are getting a look at an image which allegedly shows the educator, Bryant Mosley, on top of the teen during the incident. The picture was provided by online news site allongeorgia.com

Myers said in an email to the superintendent, “…this has the aroma of a cover up.” He said.

Myers said the school board was not told about the incident until 18 days after it allegedly occurred.

“Not only does Montravious deserve justice, the people deserve justice. The people deserve to have certain facts.” Said Myers.

CBS46 News Reporter Daniel Wilkerson approached Superintendent Dr. David Lewis after the public meeting.

“(Wilkerson) So no cover up here, sir? (Dr. Lewis) Absolutely not. (Wilkerson) Well, why the closed door meeting?” (Dr. Lewis) We don’t comment on pending litigation…”

The teen’s attorney said the educator, Bryant Mosley, body slammed the teen five times and then carried Montravious to a bus, sending him home.   The attorney said an ambulance was never called.  Montravious is being treated at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.
