Student/Teacher Violent Fight Caught on Cell Phone












A Santa Monica High School teacher is in hot water for having a violent fight with a student. The entire fight was recorded on a cellphone and posted on the internet.

Sources stated the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District Superintendent Sandra Lyon sent a letter to parents Friday notifying them about the classroom confrontation.

In the letter, Lyon says the videos were "utterly alarming."

School officials said Mark Black, who's also a wrestling coach, was put on leave without pay, pending an investigation. The teacher confronted the student after he was allegedly selling marijuana in his classroom.

City News Service reports no one was injured in the fight. The video displays blood on Black's forehead while he attempted to slam the student on the classroom floor.

The student's name has not been released.

There is no reason for any teacher to put his hands on a student for any reason.
