A Mill Creek teacher has resigned after a reckless conduct incident at a Mulberry Park home in Braselton during the early March 20 morning hours.

The neighbor in the adjacent townhouse called 911 to report the incident. He initially assured his daughter the noise wasn’t a gunshot and encouraged her to return to bed. Moments later, Nyree Rapley, who lives in the townhouse where the argument had occurred, knocked on the door to be sure everyone was OK after the gun was fired.

Rapley said her boyfriend was gone and did not want police notified. She was crying, appeared to be intoxicated and returned to her residence.

After finding a hole in the wall behind his daughter’s dresser and locating a bullet on the floor, the complainant notified authorities.

Rapley told police her boyfriend told her he wanted to break up and they were talking outside. He returned inside, and she got two guns from his truck and brought them inside.

She told him she had them and he could leave. When he attempted to get the handguns from the crying female, she ran with them into another bedroom and secured the door. She said she then fired a shot and he kicked in the door.

He took the guns, brought her downstairs and left.

Rapley, a science teacher and cheer coach, was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail just before 3:30 a.m. March 20 on reckless conduct and discharging a firearm charges, and released on a $1,425 bond just before 9:30 a.m.
