VIDEO: Student Beats Teacher, Juvenile Detention Sends Him Home

The Atlanta high school student was arrested for assault, but the detention center refused to take custody of him.

Atlanta, GA – A Georgia high school teacher was viciously beaten by a ninth-grade student when he tried to stop the teen from brawling with a peer (video below).

The incident occurred at Frederic Douglass High School on Monday, WSB reported.

Atlanta Public Schools (APS) said that the student barged into the teacher’s classroom and confronted another student, resulting in a physical altercation between the two teens, according to WTSP.

When the teacher tried to break up the brawl, the student who initiated the confrontation then turned on him instead.

Cell phone footage showed the teen as he stood over the teacher and repeatedly punched him in the face.

The teacher, who was knocked to the ground during the attack, held up his arms in an effort to protect his head from the merciless blows.

Just before the clip ended, another individual grabbed onto the teen and tackled him to the ground.

“He grabbed me! He grabbed me!” the teen yelled as others pinned him to the floor.

An APS police officer responded to the classroom and placed the student under arrest, but the Fulton County Juvenile Detention Center refused to take custody of him, WTSP reported.

He was ultimately released to his parent, but still faces an assault charge.

The teacher was transported to Grady Hospital with minor injuries, and has since been released, according to WTSP.

“Safety and security of students and staff is a top priority in APS,” the district told WSB in a statement.

Both teens will also face disciplinary action in accordance with the APS student code of conduct, according to school officials.

"He grabbed me first" Of course he did, because you were fighting in his classroom. Some people are always the victim and never see the problems that they cause.

Kid had the sense not to pull out his finger-pistol.

And if the white teacher would have fought back, the 13% would be screaming RACISM!!!!

I certainly hope the student was expelled..for life. If I was principal he would never be allowed back.

Why would both kids face disciplinary action ? This punk thug came into this classroom and behaved like an animal...his ass needs to be in juvenile hall - only a matter of time before he kills someone

Thank a Democrat

B Hussein Obama's legacy the emboldened thugs and the war on cops

Democrats have morphed into the trade union for America's malignancies.  Thugs, criminals, MS13, dishonest attorneys, fake news personalities, radicals, illegals, and anything else that runs counter to our constitution, norms, laws, or sovereignty is a welcome vote to Democrats.

This is ridiculous! A student pulls the attacking student off the teacher being beaten and he is arrested? Doesn't say much for the authorities there!

I want to know why the detention center refused to take custody of him.

The really sad part is that if the teacher had fought back he would have been arrested, charged and put in prison.

The kid was wrong, but it's also important to note the obvious combat dynamic in that fight.

This starts at home. Useless parents too busy climbing social or business ladders to do their jobs as parents.... Proof of pronounced hereditary disasociative dysfunction. Brains located below waistline.

Liberals judges, liberals and no account parents are the cause of this. Black kids are beating kids, adults and teachers in every state and getting away with it. We just had the state fair in my city and a large group of approximately 12 blacks jumped, beat and robbed a 12 year old, small built Hispanic boy. Such lowlife cowards. A black teen in my city shot two people and the judge gave him probation so he shot another person. A 16 year old black teen was burglarizing houses about a mile from me and got probation so them he shoots a father in front of his wife and kids to rob them, leaves there and kidnaps an elderly couple in their 80’s and rapes the woman. 74 percent of black woman are unwed mothers and most have multiple kids living on welfare. Liberals don’t care that many of them are raising criminals. Plus they get away with almost anything. When they burnt down Ferguson, MO nothing happened to them . Wise up liberals because they will come after you soon.

Its time these teachers start suing cities for having a hostile workplace. When the city has to pay out 4 or 5 million to teachers, maybe they will wake up and actually deal with the thugs. Money is all these cities really understand.

YouTube removed the video. Could they be any more anti-American and anti-Law Enforcement? 💁🏻‍♂️
