A Tennessee high school teacher experienced a shocking turn of events when he was pepper-sprayed twice by an angry student after confiscating her phone during class.
The dramatic incident was captured on cellphone video by another student and has since gone viral.
The confrontation took place at Antioch High School, where the student had her phone taken away as a disciplinary action for “texting and Googling answers for her school work,” according to a Reddit user who shared the video.
In the clip, the female student can be seen leaving the classroom and following the teacher into the hallway, where she demands her phone back.
The situation escalates when the teacher reveals that the student had already pepper-sprayed him once. Undeterred, the student sprays him again, causing him to fall to his knees and yell out in pain.
Another teacher eventually steps in to intervene, but the student continues to demand her phone back even after the pepper-sprayed teacher is back on his feet.
This is reportedly the second time this teacher has been assaulted by a student. Two months earlier, he was punched in the face by a different student after confiscating their phone for cheating in class.
Social media users have been quick to condemn the student’s behavior and call for her expulsion and arrest.
