Houston teacher caught on camera for assaulting student

A school district in the Houston area is investigating an alleged assault by a teacher on a student after a disturbing video of the altercation surfaced, FOX 26 reported Thursday.

The alleged attack took place Wednesday at Humble ISD Humble High School, located about 25 minutes northeast of Houston. In a video of the altercation shared with FOX 26 by Elvert Bolden, the student’s father, a teacher can be seen grabbing and pushing a student onto desks and chairs in the classroom. In the end, the teacher crashes the student into the wall of the classroom as the other students try to separate them.

The fight continued even after the other students tried to stop it, and a student can be heard asking the teacher why he put his hands on him. The teacher then threw the student to the ground and climbed on top of him, over the protests of the other students.


“I want him arrested, charged, I want his teaching license revoked, I don’t want him to be unable to go to any school, in any state, and be able to teach another child, in that case if he can do it again here,” Bolden told Damaly Keith of FOX 26.

Bolden told FOX 26 that his son was left bruised and limping with such swelling from his injuries that he had to be taken to the emergency room. “This teacher put his hands on my child, but this teacher had to get into the car and drive home. I have problems with that.”

In a statement to FOX 26, representatives from Humble ISD stated that “This shouldn’t have happened. This is unacceptable. The teacher was sent on leave. An investigation is ongoing and it is unlikely that he will return when the investigation is over.”

“The teacher was helping in another class when he used physical force to force a student to sit down and listen. These actions are unacceptable and contrary to the standards and expectations for all employees,” the officials continued in a statement. FOX 26 reported that Humble ISD is investigating the matter, but the teacher has yet to be charged.
