Authorities are investigating an incident of vandalism in Barrow County that was an apparent act of hate.
On April 8, a resident on Mary Alice Drive in Winder reported to police that someone had spray-painted “TRANS DAD” in red on the back of his pickuup truck.
The victim told police he was a teacher in Barrow County but did not believe any of his students damaged his car.
According to police, the victim said that his wife is also a teacher at a local middle school and had previously had an issue with one of her students who lives in their neighborhood.
An investigation was continuing.
