Gastonia man needed stitches after hit with neighbor's machete

A Gastonia man has gashes in his head and needed stitches after he said his next door neighbor attacked him with a machete two days ago.

Chad Morgan said the man, Walter Preslar, grabbed him, pulled him into his apartment then attacked him.

"I believe he was dragging me in there to kill me. I really believe that," said Morgan. He said he's still shocked his neighbor attacked him with a machete Wednesday night.

“This was just totally unprovoked," said Morgan.

Morgan said his aunt died and he was on the phone Wednesday making arrangements with relatives. He said he was pacing in front of Preslar's apartment right next door.

"[He] started raising cane because he thought I was looking through his window," Morgan told Channel 9.

The two men then had an argument at Preslar's front door and witnesses told police that Preslar pulled Morgan inside.

"When he originally hit me, I went to my knees. When I realized he was dragging me into his house, I got up," said Morgan.

Preslar told Channel 9 that Morgan came into his apartment and he needed the machete for self-defense.

“I grabbed this and said, ‘Get out of here,’" said Preslar.

Preslar said he hit Morgan in the head with the handle.

"I just took the hatchet like this and bopped him on the head, made him leave me alone," Preslar said.

Both men fought until neighbors broke it up and Morgan needed four stitches in his head.

Police charged Preslar with assault inflicting serious injury. He is out on bond and the two men are living next door to each other again.

"I am moving out as soon as I can," Morgan told Channel 9.

Teacher accused of using hot sauce to discipline autistic student

A mother is calling for a teacher to be fired after the way she said her son was disciplined.
 
The mother told Channel 9 a teacher used hot sauce on her son to prevent him from touching his nose in class.
 
The accused teacher used to work at Weddington Hills Elementary in Concord but is now at another school.
 
The boy's mom is angry over what happened to her son and she wants more action taken.

"She took advantage of him, and she needs to be held accountable," Cindy Joseph said.
 
She calls the incident that happened earlier this month as outrageous behavior.
 
Her 11-year-old son DJ has autism and can't speak so while Joseph said he couldn't tell her about what happened in class on Oct. 7.
 
But the principal caught the teacher putting hot sauce on DJ.
 
"She was reported of putting hot sauce on DJ's fingers because he kept digging in his nose," Joseph said.
 
She didn’t believe it at first but the principal told her they found the bottle of hot sauce in the classroom.

"I don't think she should be allowed to be teaching period, with any kids, whether they have a disability or no disability and she should not be allowed to have a license," Joseph said.

School officials wouldn't talk about any specific incident but confirmed the teacher now works at Royal Oaks Elementary.
 
They also confirmed the teacher was suspended on Oct. 8 -- the day after the alleged incident.
 
Joseph is glad her son is OK but said the school district shouldn't take any more chances.

"I feel in my heart she doesn't need to teach period,” Joseph said. “She needs to be held accountable for her actions."

Now, she wants to file abuse charges against the teacher.

Rivera: Hardy should be allowed to play if trial pushed back

Carolina Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera addressed reports Friday that defensive end Greg Hardy's appeal won't be heard until after the season.

Hardy appealed for a jury trial after a judge convicted him of assaulting his girlfriend.

That trial is set for Nov. 17, but Channel 9 reported in September there is a good chance it would be pushed back because of the backlog in the courts.

After a series of domestic violence cases in the NFL, Hardy put himself on the commissioner's exempt list after playing in Week 1. That decision removed him from the team's active roster.

Rivera was asked Friday if Hardy should play if his trial is pushed back.

Past coverage:


He explained that based on the NFL’s new domestic violence rules, Hardy would have already served the 6-game suspension by Nov. 17.

“Do you think he should be allowed back at that point?” a reporter asked Rivera.

“My personal opinion, yes I would like to, but you know again I don't set policy,” Rivera said.

“Why do you think he should be allowed to?” a reporter asked.

“Well just because he's been out and you know if things would have transpired and gone a certain way then his availability might be now so we'll see. Again I don't set the policy,” Rivera said.

Channel 9 checked with the DA’s office and they said they haven't made an official decision on whether to postpone Hardy's trial.
