Talk about calling in sick: A high school music and art teacher received a severe reprimand after it came to light that he lied about killing a small girl so he could skip work.
Joyce Kilmartin, head of Calderhead High School in North Lanarkshire, said McGlone had made up several stories to explain absences between June of 2008 and May of 2011.
She recalled McGlone telling her he was stranded due to the Icelandic ash cloud, when, in reality, he was safe at home in Glasgow.
But perhaps the most disturbing fib concerned an accident involving a little girl McGlone claimed he ran over.
For his fabrications, McGlone received a reprimand that will remain on the teaching register for a full year.
