In a quiet and secluded ceremony, Odyssey Charter School’s math teacher, Timothy Carney was awarded as the school’s Teacher of the Year.
According to public records, Carney was arrested just this January for domestic violence. The arrest report states that he pushed his wife during a verbal altercation around 10:30pm on January 18, 2023. The report says the argument started because Timothy’s wife who says she is suffering from cancer, was complaining that he was being to loud on the phone.
The report goes on to say that he began yelling and screaming in her face, telling her to close the bedroom door. She stated she would once their dog came back into the bedroom, but instead he pushed her into the room and closed the door. He admitted his actions to police when they arrived and was subsequently arrested for Domestic Battery.
Records show that prosecutors chose to eventually drop the charges, but it is not clear why.
