Watercooler Topic: High School Teacher Fights Student

(DJ Sight) Over the weekend a video surfaced and went viral of a high school music teacher and student getting into a fight at Maywood Academy High School in Los Angeles.

The music teacher was arrested and the student was taken to the hospital with minor injuries after the fight. 

The video taken by students in the class shows the student confronting and repeatedly insulting the teacher verbally. The student even throws a basketball at the teacher.

You can hear the teacher tell  the student to just leave the classroom before he hit the student but the 11th grader kept going at the teacher.

Online parents are split on how they feel about the whole situation, some believe the teacher was defending himself but others say he was in the wrong.

After watching the video what are your thoughts on the incident?
