VIDEO: Student Assaults Texas Teacher, Makes Him Give Back Cell Phone

Video showed the assault on the teacher by an angry student.

Cedar Hill, TX – A video recorded in a Texas classroom shows a student assaulting a teacher and violently throwing papers and because the teacher took the student’s cell phone away (video below.)

The teacher’s response was to give the cell phone back to the student and not to react to the attack, according to WFAA-TV.

Cedar Hill High School physics teacher Bobby Soehnge is being celebrated for not escalating the situation.

Chris Hunt, a parent of a student at the school district, posted the video of Soehnge being attacked on Facebook on May 8. It has received 1.2 million views and was shared 14,879 times as of May 12.

“Wow this happened at my daughters school today?? This is sad,” Hunt’s Facebook post read. “Father’s We Gotta Raise These Young Men Better, But I commend the teacher because he handled it & he’s a better man than me!!”

Hunt and his daughter showed support for the teacher. They brought several gift bags with T-shirts and a gift card for Soehnge.

"It broke my heart a little bit, to be honest," Hunt told WFAA. "I just want to let him know I appreciate him for how he handled that.”

Soehnge said that his priority was not making the student’s tantrum any worse.

"The important thing was to not add any energy into the dynamic that would make the situation more complicated," Soehnge said, according to WFAA.

The student was disciplined for his conduct but the high school principal said the story has a good ending.

Principal Michael McDonald said the teacher and the student met after class and talked and hugged. The student and his mother then apologized for the incident, according to the school district.

The student was disciplined, then he and the teacher discussed the situation and hugged it out? Sounds like a great story. Almost a nonstory.

I'll leave that up to everyone else as to why this story was even posted.

He needs to be in jail. I dont give a shit if he apologized. He assaulted the teacher and needs to be in jail!

Yes, let them get away with their actions and everyone will be happy. He would be doing jail time if he were to touch me.
I also believe this is from a couple years ago. I remember seeing it a while back.

Of course you like this story lol. Let’s just look passed the fact that he assaulted the teacher over a phone. He hugged so it’s all good now. Maybe he can try that when he escalates to something else.
