Philadelphia teen charged after student-teacher fight video emerges

PHILADELPHIA -- What started as a classroom argument stemmed into an all-out brawl between a student and his English teacher at a Philadelphia-area high school, according to KYW.

The video, which was posted on social media Monday afternoon, shows the unidentified 16-year-old student and his teacher fighting after class ended.

“I don’t think he [the teacher] was trying to swing,” said senior Austin Augustine. “I saw him throw one punch, but the kid was throwing a lot of punches.”

The viral video led to a charge of aggravated assault for the teenager and left the teacher under investigation by the police and school district.
