Father accused of assaulting student at Centennial Middle School

UPDATED: Fri., Dec. 13, 2019

A Spokane Valley father was charged with assault Friday and, along with his adult son, banned from West Valley School District properties after they gained entry to Centennial Middle School and the father reportedly pinned a student against a table.

The father and son gained entry to the building after six or seven students were involved in a fight earlier in the morning, according to Cpl. Mark Gregory, a Spokane County Sheriff’s Office spokesman. The fight resulted in one student receiving a bloody nose; all of the involved students were sent to the school office.

One of the involved students let their father, McNeil E. Glover, 40, into the building through a locked door, according a news release. Glover’s son, Daelyn D. Warren, 19, also was let into the building.

Glover went into the school’s office, knocked a teacher out of his way and pinned one of the students involved in the fight with his son against a table, according to a news release. Glover then had to be restrained.

No one was seriously injured during the fight or the subsequent incident with Glover, the news release said.

Glover was charged with fourth-degree assault and interference by force or violence, according to the sheriff’s office. Warren, who was previously banned from West Valley School District property, was charged with first-degree trespassing.

Warren graduated from Spokane Valley Transition School last year, according to The Current newspaper.

Neither man was jailed, according to jail records. Both were banned from going to any West Valley School District property, according to the sheriff’s office.

The school district is handling the discipline of the students involved, according to a news release.
