On Tuesday, a student at Cedar Hill High School in Texas appeared to assault physics teacher Bobby Soehnge during class after Soehnge took his phone away.
The student in the video can be seen “knocking papers off a teachers desk, cursing and then shoving the teacher’s face,” WFAA reported.
The video — which was uploaded to Facebook by Chris Hunt, whose daughter attends the school — sparked outrage as it went viral on the social media platform.
“Give me my f**king phone. This is the last time asking your stupid ass,” the teen yelled at the teacher before shoving his face. “Give me my damn phone.”
The teacher gave in and gave the student his phone back.
“I was shocked to see such egregious behavior,” said principal Michael McDonald. “That’s not something we condone.”
WFAA reported that the school district said, without giving exact details, that they disciplined the student, although the incident did not end in a predictable manner.
“[The teacher] actually met with the student after the class, they talked, they hugged,” said McDonald. “He spent a lot of time working with the student through the course of the year. They have a great relationship and that was just a bad day the student was having.”
