A sixteen year-old Houston student was caught on video shoving his 66 year-old teacher to the ground during class.
The entire assault was posted on the internet.
The sixteen year-old may do time for the assault.
A 16-year-old boy has been charged with injury to the elderly after cell phone video captured him shoving a substitute teacher at Nimitz High School.
The cell phone video shows the teacher approaching the student twice, and the student pushing against the teacher each time, before he forcefully shoves the woman to the ground.
Aldine Independent School District officials said the incident occurred in a classroom after the substitute teacher confiscated the student’s cell phone.
“She took his phone because he was in class texting,” said senior Calvin Bennet Rainwater. “ We’re not supposed to have our phones out. He pushed her like three times.
Senior Daija Owen saw the video too.
“You can see her walking past to try get away from it,” said Owen. “He pushed her twice. The last time she’s on the ground you see her kind of hit her head going down. It wasn’t good a thing to see.”
