Police are investigating after a substitute teacher and a student at Miami Central Senior High School went at it like two WWE fighters in the middle of class.
A video circulating on social media shows the female student and teacher, who has short hair, fighting inside a classroom on Monday. The student is throwing punches and eventually traps the sub against the desk.
The female teacher, who is pulling on the student’s long hair, puts her in a headlock and tries to pin her against the desk. She later loses her grip and is thrown to the ground.
The student tries to body-slam her but is pushed off by a male student.
The substitute teacher then pins her on the floor.
The video shows other students inside the class. Some are shouting, “Oh! Oh!” Others are recording it on their phones.
The video does not show how the fight started.
Miami-Dade Public Schools says the fight happened Monday at Miami Central Senior High School, 1781 NW 95th St., between a substitute teacher and a student who was not supposed to be in the class. It’s still unclear why the fight began. The district did not identify the teacher or disclose the age of the student.
“Miami-Dade County Public Schools does not tolerate incidents that jeopardize the safety and well-being of students and staff members. We are deeply troubled by the behavior exhibited on this video,” said Daisy Gonzalez-Diego, chief communications officer for MDCPS. “As part of their investigation, Miami-Dade Schools Police will be reviewing various video sources and interviewing witnesses to determine the circumstances behind this unfortunate event. Disciplinary action is forthcoming.”
