Fired Berks Co. teacher denies school riot

BERKS COUNTY, Pa. - October 24, 2012

Andre Bean was fired from his job at Delaware Valley High School in Reading back in September.

The school is a place for children with behavioral problems.

Attorneys for the company that runs the school filed a lawsuit, claiming Bean and other ex-staffers helped organize a riot at the school, in retaliation for the firings.

Bean denies the accusation in a filed court response saying the claims are ridiculous and defamatory.

Two Reading police officers were hurt during the riot.
