Second Strongsville Teacher is Charged
Chris Koval drove recklessly near a van carrying substitute teachers, police say
A second Strongsville teacher has been charged for his actions at a school.
Chris Koval, 37, who is listed as a teacher at Strongsville High School, was cited about 7:55 a.m. Thursday morning for reckless operation on Waterford Parkway, near Kinsner Elementary School.
Safety Director Charles Goss said Koval, who lives in Brunswick Hills, drove his vehicle in a reckless manner that appeared to be directed at a van carrying substitute teachers to the school.
A Strongsville Education Association spokesperson said Koval was cited for driving too slowly in front of the van.
Goss declined to go into detail about what happened. But he said that not only was a citation issued, the case will also be referred to the city prosecutor to see if more charges are warranted.
On Wednesday, Ian Steffen, 37, a teacher at Center Middle School, was arrested at the school for disorderly conduct after allegedly ignoring a police order to stop blocking traffic in the driveway,
