Video Shows Tennessee High School Student Punching Teacher

A cell phone video, posted on YouTube by a Hunters Lane High School Student, captured a teacher being punched in the face.

Police said Jason Witt, a music teacher, did nothing to provoke the fight. He was simply directing traffic in the hallway when the 17-year-old student punched him in the face.

It wasn’t the first time incidents of violence have been reported at Hunters Lane High School.

Two months ago, a student was attacked on school grounds by a mother and her two adult sons when they thought he had taken a cell phone.

According to police, in the last six months, there have been a total of 30 arrests at Hunters Lane – 14 assaults, 3 disorderly conducts, 3 drug violations and 2 weapons violations.
