A video of a teacher in an Antoich, Tennessee, high school being pepper sprayed twice by a student has been making its rounds on Reddit since Friday, May 5, 2023. The student pepper sprayed the teacher as the latter had confiscated the former's phone.
A Reddit user, @Lazy_Mouse3803, shared the video and claimed that the student was "texting and Googling answers for her school work" when the teacher confiscated the phone.
The user added that this was the second time that the teacher was assaulted by a student. Two months ago, the same teacher was punched in the face after taking away a different student's phone when the latter was caught cheating. The user explained that incidents like these were commonplace at this Antioch high school.
