Police were called to Chattooga Early Head Start after a father was barred from taking his son from school Wednesday, according to Summerville Police reports.

Antonio Ashley wanted to take his 3-year-old son to the zoo and arrived at the school on Congress Street around 12:19 p.m. to get his child. School officials said he could not take the child. The father's name had been removed from a list of approved people to sign-out the child.

"That's my son and I'm taking him," Ashley allegedly told school staff.

A teacher blocked the doorway and told Ashley he could not leave with the child.

"Then you need to call the police because I'm taking him," Ashley allegedly told staff, according to Summerville Police Officer Tim Fulmer's report.

The police was called and Ashley took his son to the parking lot. A school employee stood in front of Ashley's vehicle and blocked him in until police arrived.

"Mr. Ashley reported that he had not been advised by anyone at the school or his son's mother, Felicia Harris, that he would no longer be allowed to pick up [his son] from school and that he was totally unaware of the changes until after the . . .incident had occurred," Ashley said.

The child then returned to the classroom. No charges were made, according to police reports.
