The incident happened Wednesday, April 20th and was caught on camera.

The video, which was shared with the FOX6 News Facebook page on Wednesday is tough to watch.

It shows the teacher's aide push the student into a desk, and then hold him down on the floor. The teacher can be heard leveling expletives at the student during the entire incident, which happened shortly before 11:00 a.m. Students told FOX6 News it happened during a freshman biology class.

The video is now being shared around the country.

Security eventually broke up the fight.

The aide, who FOX6 News is not naming since he has not yet been criminally charged, was quickly arrested.

On Thursday, he was transferred to the Milwaukee County Jail.

No one answered the door at a home neighbors said he may share with his brother.


The man has no criminal record.

As for the teen in the video, his family has not commented. When FOX6 News stopped at his house, a teen was seen taking out the trash -- but ran back inside and locked the door.

On Wednesday, MPS officials called the allegations deeply disturbing.

The Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office has 48 hours to set bail in this case.

    I could only imagine 30 to 40 years ago how many teachers back then would be thrown in jail today by actually taking control of their classrooms and having to discipline a kid for acting like a jerk. We all wonder why kids have no respect for adults anymore.

    I had a teacher smack my knuckles with a yard stick that he carried around. Somehow that meant something to me. I learned to keep my stupid mouth shut. I went to his funeral many years later. I told his family how that man profiled my life. It turned out very well. kids are so f–ked up now. I don’t know if there is any hope.

    Way to go Fox 6!! Use that race/poverty card!! Don’t bother to mention that the kid tried to steal someones car the day before. No one needs to know about that…. (Thank you other Local TV station.)
    Don’t bother to look into or try to find out what led up to the teacher loosing it with this kid.

    I’m going to assume you are not intelligent enough to see sarcasm or apathy for your “brand” of journalism. Your media company is not helping. You are just a glaring example of the problem over and over again on a nightly basis.

    It’s truly unethical to display a picture of the the aide’s home because if revenge is sought by the student, it makes it easier to identify his residence. Also what does the aide’s salary has to do with the story.? At least he’s not breaking the law to earn a living. Fox News really lacks professionalism!!!

    These thug/terrorists with a chip on their shoulder. disrupting class. Then they take it to the streets then they end up in prison or dead. Repeat cycle. But….. Black lies matter!

    Just another punk crying foul when he got schooled by an adult. Little bast*rd needs to scrub wayside toilets and floors with a toothbrush as punishment. Throwing his useless butt in a group home will do no good. Put him to work every day of the week. I bet his mama says he’s a good boy ……

  • MelissaK

    No worries. I am betting that this 14 tear old punk thug will be in prison or dead by the time he’s 18. Just gotta wait it out.
