ROCKFORD, Iowa (AP) - The president of a northern Iowa school board has quit, saying he shoved a student.

Tim Trettin said Wednesday that he lost his temper a few weeks ago and shoved the student in the school’s weight room. Trettin says he thought the student had cursed at him.

The Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock School District board accepted Trettin’s resignation at its Jan. 18 meeting. Trettin had served eight years on the board.

The Mason City Globe Gazette (https://bit.ly/20xellT ) reports that Rockford police and the Floyd County Attorney’s Office say no criminal charges are pending against Trettin.
