A Florida student has been arrested and charged with felony aggravated battery with bodily harm after brutally assaulting his teacher.

The now-viral video was shared by the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office on their Facebook page.

According to a statement released by the police, on Feb. 21, the FCSO school resource deputies assigned to Matanzas High School were alerted to a paraprofessional employee being physically attacked on campus. Upon arrival, deputies found the victim on the ground with severe injuries.

The 17-year-old student was escorted from the area. He was taken to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility, them later turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
The student allegedly told authorities he became upset after the victim took his Nintendo Switch away from him during class.
The video then shows the student kicking and punching the unconscious woman several times in her back and head. Others rushed in to help the victim, who was later transported to a local hospital for treatment.
“The actions of this student are absolutely horrendous and completely uncalled for,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “We hope the victim will be able to recover, both mentally and physically, from this incident. Thankfully, students and staff members came to the victim’s aid before the SRDs could arrive. Our schools should be a safe place – for both employees and students.”
“Creating a safe learning and working environment on our campuses is critical. Violence is never an appropriate reaction,” said Flagler Schools Superintendent Cathy Mittelstadt.
In another twist of events, social media is calling for the other faculty members who did not intervene to be fired. The school has not responded to those requests at this time.
