A high school student in Paterson, New Jersey was charged with assault Friday on suspicion of “body slamming” his physics teacher who took away his cell phone.
Another student recorded the alleged assault, which happened last Monday at John F. Kennedy High School.
In the video, the 16-year-old student appears to wrap his arms around the teacher and knocks him into an empty desk. The student then wrestles with the teacher before slamming him to the floor.
As the teacher lies on the ground, the teen can be seen taking something him as someone else yells “Security!” WPIX reports.
