A public school teacher in St. Paul was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries sustained when he tried to break up a student fight at Como Park High School. How the fight started, and who escalated the situation, is in dispute.
But the moment when two students drove the teacher to the ground was captured on video by a student, and soon posted online.
That video shows the teacher with one kid in a headlock. That student doesn't appreciate this, and tries lifting the teacher off the ground, while the second kid appears to give the teacher a shove; the combined effect takes the teacher to the cement floor, where the scuffle appears to break up.
Two other noteworthy details: The videographer and narrator's audible reaction when she realizes it's a teacher involved in the fray, and the guy in the foreground who just starts jumping up and down. Both seem appropriate.
