A father has been sent to jail for nearly a year after hitting his child’s teacher with his car in a violent fit of road rage, police said.
Rainer Schoeman, 22, attempted to drop off his partner’s 9-year-old daughter when a teacher stopped him from driving onto school grounds at Winston Churchill School in Woking, England, on Feb. 20, British Police said.
Parents had previously been told to not drop their children off in such a manner, but Schoeman wouldn’t take no for an answer, Metro reported.
“Well, unless I see something in writing I’m coming in,” Schoeman reportedly told the teacher who was posted at the entrance to enforce the rule.
Schoeman revved his engine as the teacher turned away, but the irate motorist continued to edge forward until he knocked into the teachers legs and caused him to fall on top of the car’s hood, surveillance footage of the incident obtained by APTN showed.
He then accelerated through the gates, taking the educator with him.
The man eventually fell off the hood of the car, hitting his head on the ground.
He sustained an injury to his head that needed to be glued shut.
Schoeman and the educator had previously had words about the new rule on Feb. 6, according to reports.
Schoeman pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm, dangerous driving, driving without insurance and not having an MOT certificate, which shows the motorist passed an annual test of vehicle safety, roadworthiness aspects and exhaust emissions required for some vehicles in Great Britain.
He was sentenced to 10 months in jail at Guilford Crown Court on Friday.
