HOUSTON - Aldine ISD police say a 16-year-old student at Nimitz High School was so upset with his substitute teacher for taking his phone, he pushed her onto the ground.
The video shows the student, who's described as 6 foot 3 and 325 lbs., standing up and pushing the teacher three times and on the third time the 66-year-old woman fell to the ground.
"We have a school policy that we can't use phones, we can't use phones during the day, so she was right to take his phone. For him to act that way, it isn't worth it," said student Daija Owen.
Police say the teenager was using his phone in class and got physical with the substitute teacher to get it back.
"The substitute teacher confiscated a cell phone from a 16-year-old male student. The student attempted to retrieve his cell phone. He got up and shoved the substitute teacher, shoved her repeatedly and eventually shoved her to the ground," Aldine ISD spokesperson Jason Spencer said.
The student actually walked himself to the principal's office to turn himself in. He was charged with injury to the elderly. His name isn't being released because he is a minor.
The substitute teacher, who is retired full-time teacher, was rushed to the hospital with minor injuries and released a short time later.
There is no word on whether the student will return to class.
sub needs to sue the snot out of this fat ass POS family
The news media took a statement from one of the girls in the class: “Everybody was laughing but I didn’t think it was funny. You can’t just shove her like that.” Oh yeah? Then what can you do?
The little child was reacting to the teacher’s “ white privilege “
This news report is racist.
....Come on in guys, this goose stepping is kinda fun, all together now....
I have stated that some people just need to be killed. That man reinforces my feelings.
That’s a valid defense here in Texas. “He needed killin’.”
“We have a school policy that we can’t use phones, we can’t use phones during the day, so she was right to take his phone. For him to act that way, it isn’t worth it,”
The mob has “policies” too. Taking something from someone is still stealing. He may have been following his own “policy” that he wasn’t going to put up with it.
Dang, that's a mountain!
I’d do a search for a cellphone Video of such an incident.... posted to his fazedbook page...but Im afraid I might find it
Students are cheering him on. Future welfare recipients of the Great Society
The student is another dead eyed zombie. He has no idea why he did it. He’s operating on the level of an amoeba
student— large black male
teacher-— rotund 66 year white old woman. Her fat insulated her from getting hurt IMO
In my day’s he would have been swarmed by student’s. We don’t raise MEN anymore.
Is it possible to have some sort of kill switch for student cell phones in classrooms? When I worked at a high school recently, a veteran(years teaching) teacher’s arm was grabbed violently by a student retrieving his phone.
The racist hominoid belongs in a cage after being shoved in one with cattle prods..
"Before we all jump to conclusions, is there any possibility that this white teacher may have used the "N-word" when addressing this young African-american? In so very many cases this is precisely what precipitates the young man defending himself. And that is very well what may have happened here. I would suggest some type of investigation into the teacher to see if she has displayed any type of bigotry over the years. Only after we've looked closely at her background, can we begin to question the student's actions."
"Hell, he could have killed the teacher if he wanted to, but didn't. His restrain was noteworthy."
Cellphone jammers do exist, but legality is probably an issue. Especially so now that the government is using cellphones as part of the Emergency Alert System.
Yes. You can definitely block cell phone signals in schools. And they should do this.
Every time there is an “incident” in a public “school”, I smile a little. Keep em coming. At one point, parents will have it enough and the “right to education” mentality will be done for good.
If you make education an earned privilege, not only will you have these little monsters not waste tax payers’ money, but get on with their usual lives (in juvis and then to prisons) far sooner.
I knew without looking that it was one of Obama’s sons.
the student, who’s described as 6 foot 3 and 325 lbs.

He is a mountain. The teacher is not only older but is tiny, tiny, particularly by comparison. She’s lucky he didn’t pick her up and slam her against the wall. Lots of local news coverage on it. Just don’t understand why they would even consider putting him back in any class in any school, except perhaps reform school. IMO, he should have been taken immediately to jail. Just another reason to question why anyone would want to teach in some of our public schools.
If he’s just a regular student, “throw him in jail and bury the key”. If he’s a 5-* athlete, “He’s just a kid who made a mistake.”
This has nothing to do with unions, sorry.
Unless people understand they are responsible for cultivating their free education the public schools will continue to be medicore. Maybe this is the problem with offering anything for free.
This is how they really think.
That... is amazing. That's mental illness, there. That's got to be some sort of mental illness.
You should have warned us that we needed to warm up first, Mr. CrimsonShoe.
I have pulled a hamstring and I will be unable to get to the unemployment office this week for my weekly allowance.
I will be having my attorneys, ‘Dewey, Cheatem and Howe’, contact you to schedule the first of many payments for the hurt, embarrassment, disfigurement and pain that you have caused me.
Have a good day sir.

They should begin their investigation by tazing him unconscious, slapping cuffs and irons on him, and have him get injured while resisting arrest.
And shoot his dog.
Another one of Obama’s “sons” displaying the award winning attributes of the sunburned Amish we have all come to love and cherish. /sarc/
This POS needs to be charged with assault against a senior citizen. I hope he will be charged as an adult. He won’t need his cell phone in prison.
Jesse Jackson and Al Not-soSharpton will be commenting that the sub is racist and a technophobe. They’ll say he need the cell phone because it is a cultural issue.
Wats a bro have to do yo get invited to the wh for a beer?
Everyone else laughed - what does that tell you about the next generation?
You think an EBT card should cover five-figure legal civil awards for thug misbehavior??
Oh look. He’s ‘amish’. What a surprise.
“There is no word on whether the student will return to class.”
The fact that this is even in question is disturbing.
There's nothing "future" about it.
I would lay odds that it was an Obamaphone, or a phone "purchased" by the sale of half a dozen Obamaphones.
Hey, hey, hey, don’t take my phone away......
Well educated and articulane, and insane, are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
The comments were written by idiots. The person(?) who wrote the teacher might have used the ‘N-word’ must be Magic Johnson or Jessie Jackson. What the F isthat person(?)’s IQ, 1? The other subhuman who wrote he showed rrestraint must be a kindergarten drop out.
Texas needs a Kersey Brigade Too!
You are not allowed to use a cell phone jammer in school. This is a pity, because despite official school rules banning them, the rules are rarely enforced. Teachers feel foolish continuing lessons while nearly every student’s attention is riveted to that plastic toy in their hands. You might as well recite the phone book as much as they are listening. Then they want to know why they fail classes. I also just love when students take unauthorized pictures of their teachers in class to embarrass them, record what they are saying and edit it to get their teacher in trouble, and take pictures of their exams to text them to friends in the classroom.
Well it started out as a mental illness. The way pneumonia starts out as a cold.
Then the parasites moved in.
“More discussion here. Thanks for posting.”
Thanks for the “head’s up.” Interesting discussions.
Doesn’t matter go for everything
