An Oklahoma teacher is under fire, after calling a high school student the "n word." The student retaliated, by pulling the alleged racist teacher's glasses off her face - and breaks them, MTO News confirmed. The teacher in response called the police on the student.
And now the teacher is out on leave and police are investigating whether to take action against the teenage boy.
The incident occurred inside a Holdenville, Oklahoma high school - during an intense standoff between a teenage boy and his teacher. And MTO News learned that the incident was captured on video.
In the video - the boy - who is a minor, was trying to leave the classroom and avoid a physical confrontation with his teacher. But the teacher refused to let the boy leave - instead she antagonized him, and appeared to be provoking the boy - hoping that he would lash out violently.
DA BABY MAKES FUN OF A FLIGHT ATTENDANT - FUNNY OR NAH?
But the boy refused to take the teacher's bait - at least initially. Then the teacher called the minor the N Word.
That's when the boy had enough - he snatched the teachers glasses off her face, and broke them. The teacher can be heard immediately saying that she was going to "call the police" on the child.
Here's the video:
