SC teacher fired for showing part of “Jackass 2”

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) — A teacher at Wando High School in Mount Pleasant has now been fired for playing a segment of the movie “Jackass 2” in class.

The Charleston County School District announced the firing Wednesday. Earlier, 36-year-old Christopher Derek Poston had been placed on administrative leave after a student’s parent complained about last month’s incident.

Poston told police he was watching the movie while students worked and when they asked what he was watching, he showed the film on the classroom smart board.

Poston said the movie played for about three minutes before he stopped because it was becoming increasingly inappropriate. Poston’s lawyer says he will appeal the firing.

The mother of the girl who reported the incident said there have been death threats against her daughter.
