The principal at Point Pleasant Intermediate School has been arrested and charged with felony child abuse of a student.

Point Pleasant Police Chief Ernie Waterson said Monday that Cameron Moffett turned himself in to police Friday.

Last month, Moffett told 13 News that he was being investigated by the Mason County School Board for allegedly dragging an unidentified student off the bus and using his knee to push him to the ground.

Moffett was released on a $20,000 property bond, officials said.
