On Tuesday at Cedar High School, a Texas high school student allegedly assaulted his teacher after his phone was taken away. The physics teacher, Bobby Soehnge, took the phone away during class.
During the video you can see the student knocking papers off of the teacher’s desk. He can also be seen shoving the teacher’s face and cursing.
Chris Hunt uploaded the video to Facebook. Hunt’s daughter attends the school. It immediately went viral and sparked outrage from the community.
Per Daily Wire:
“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.”
