Fresno City Instructor Accused Of Attacking Student

June 4, 2013 by  

Fresno City Instructor Accused Of Attacking Student, Fresno City College instructor and former Fresno council member Brian Calhoun was put on paid administrative leave Monday following his physical altercation with a 19-year-old female last month.

A campus police report says at least a half-dozen students and a substitute instructor support journalism major Kevynn Gomez’s account of what happened inside the Old Administrative Building on March 22, a day before spring break.

In the police report, Gomez admits cursing at Calhoun because she said he was being rude to students and a substitute teacher in her class. She said she punched Calhoun in the face because Calhoun grabbed her left arm and he used his forearm to pin her neck against a wall, the report says.

After being punched, Calhoun lifted Gomez and slammed her onto the ground. He then towered over the 5-foot, 101-pound Gomez before students pulled him away, the report says.

Calhoun wanted to continue his attack, but several students stepped in front of him, the report says.

Calhoun was cited for misdemeanor battery and ordered to appear in Fresno County Superior Court on June 19.

Calhoun, 69, is a former Fresno City Council member who has worked at FCC since 1988 and makes $109,766 per year. Monday, he referred questions to his attorney Roger Nuttall, who insisted Gomez started the fight. “This wouldn’t have happened if she hadn’t lashed out,” Nuttall said Monday.

But Gomez’s attorney, Catherine Campbell, said Nuttall’s assertion was ridiculous. “His attack was flagrant and violent,” Campbell said, noting that Calhoun is at least 6 feet tall. “He was out of control.”
