According to a press release issued by the Marshalltown Police Department, Paul Miller was arrested for assault causing bodily injury after investigating an allegation that Miller assaulted a 13-year-old student in class.

The investigation was initiated on Feb. 13 following the Feb. 12 incident.

Miller was taken into custody on Feb. 17 and has been released after posting bond. The assault causing bodily injury is a serious misdemeanor.

The Iowa Standard reported nearly two years about Miller’s anti-Trump tirade in a classroom when he taught at South Hardin Middle School. The tirade was caught on tape.

Miller allegedly told students Trump supporters should be shot in the head and sent to jail before students recorded Miller’s words, which can be heard below. Note he starts his comments by saying he may have said something in hyperbole. Then he elaborates after that without referring to what he said previously — only noting he “should not” have said it.

Miller says he doesn’t think anybody who supports Trump “is in their right mind.”

“But, I cannot stand the man and I cannot understand anyone who supports him. If you can explain to me your reason for supporting him I might listen, but I can’t get it. I can’t get past any rational reason to support him.”

A student can be heard saying he was a good President. And then a student says Trump was a lot better than Biden.

“Whoa, whoa whoa,” Miller says. “Better how? What did he do for COVID? Millions of people died. Millions. Because he chose not to act.”

Here is additional audio:

The child is engaged by Miller and singled out.

“What’d you say, Noah,” Miller said. “Hey, let’s have a serious conversation. Close the damn Chrome books, let’s have the conversation. What do you say about Biden?”

The child can be heard telling the teacher the serious conversation is over and it ended a long time ago.

“When,” Miller asks.

“When you said Biden is actually the good guy,” the child says.

Miller asks what the child means that Biden is a bad guy. And there is banter back and forth.

The Iowa Standard reached out to the Marshalltown School District but has not heard back.

Miller was allowed to resign from his previous position at South Hardin.
