Video captures assault of Milwaukee teacher

Disturbing footage captured the moment a Milwaukee high school student assaulted his teacher in the middle of class.

The shocking cell phone video shows a 16-year-old Youth Division High School student punching his teacher, knocking him to the ground, and continues to pummel the man.

The teacher and student inaudibly yell at each other moments before the first punch is thrown.

Police haven’t disclosed the circumstances that led to the physical altercation.

Milwaukee schools officials said the educator suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Cops arrested the student, who faces possible assault and battery charges when the case is presented to the Milwaukee County District Office, Fox 6 reported.

A school spokesman said the district is cooperating with the police investigation into the incident.

“Violence at MPS is a great concern to the community. Actions like this need criminal charges to send a message and hold the student responsible for their reckless and dangerous behavior. I applaud the many great teachers and students at MPS, however, there is a segment of students who choose to behave inappropriately and criminally, which robs other students and teachers of an opportunity to build a safe learning environment, Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan said in a released statement.
