We'll have a brief on this tomorrow, but the scoop goes to Eric Mansfield at wkyc.com.

Akron school leaders placed a school aid with a troubled past on paid leave following allegations that he dragged a child with severe disabilities through a hallway by his ankles. 

Ingram Myers, 50, attended a disciplinary hearing Wednesday morning to discuss the incident that occured at Ellet High School.

  The student, who suffers from severe autism, cannot speak and functions at the level of a toddler, according to his mother. He fell to the hallway floor Jan. 14, and that's when Myers allegedly dragged him by his ankles 50-100 feet back to his classroom.
