A 14 year old African American teenage boy was arrested yesterday, after he got into a "fight" that appears to have been started by the boy's female teacher.
The explosive fight, which took place inside a classroom at Iroquois High School, was caught on camera Monday. The video shows a female teacher pushing the male student and then the two began fighting - as other as kids ran from the classroom.
Jefferson County Public School told media that the altercation involved a teacher named Carrie Adams who was covering another faculty member’s room.
The 14-year-old freshman involved in the fight, and his mother Kamron Jennings told local media that the fight started when the teacher asked him to put away his cellphone.
"She was like, 'Put your phone up.' And I said 'My phone is not bothering anybody. Why do I have to put it up?. She said 'It's bothering me.'"
The argument escalated and then, as the video shows, the teacher pushed the child and all hell broke loose.
Police were called and the Black teen boy was arrested. The teacher, who appears to have started the fight has so far not been charged.
