Heads Up: Teacher with (Alleged) Bomb, The Bronx
A teacher has barricaded himself in at Middle School 328, aka New Millennium Business Academy, at 1000 Teller Avenue in the Bronx. He says he has a bomb. The Post says he's "protesting the mistreatment of teachers." Cops says they don't think he really has a bomb, but we'd give the place a wide berth, nonetheless.
Update 11:15 a.m. The standoff continues. Cops say there's no bomb. Students are not going home, but taking classes in nearby schools. Hardcore!
Update 11:45 a.m. Okay, they caught the guy. Francisco Garabitos has been teaching for 30 years. He hit a student, got put in the rubber room, was making over 100 grand, but nonetheless felt aggrieved. He wanted to talk to Randi Weingarten. She was busy, so he's talking to the cops at the precinct house instead.
