New Jersey teacher, 62, viciously attacked and slammed to the floor by student, 16.
An out-of-control student got into a violent confrontation with his teacher after his phone was confiscated during class.
The ninth grade student was in the middle of a lesson being taught by his physics teacher at John F. Kennedy High School in Paterson, New Jersey, when he flew into a rage.
A video, taken by one of the other students, shows the classroom descend into chaos as the 16-year-old boy wrestles his 62-year-old teacher to the floor.
School officials say that the student, who has not been named, has been suspended. He has also been charged with assault.
David Cozart, the school’s principal of operations, said that the boy became irate after his physics teacher took the cellphone from him.
In the 23-second clip posted to YouTube, the student can be seen wrestling with the teacher who tried to carry on with his lesson as the boy grabs him around his waist and slams him into a desk.
