A California high school teacher was arrested after a video was taken that appears to show him taking repeated punches at a student during a fistfight that broke out in his classroom.

Marston Riley was taken into custody on suspicion of child abuse and causing great bodily injury on a child after the brawl broke out at Maywood Academy High School in Maywood, Calif., Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Joana Warren, a public information officer with the department, told local Los Angeles news station KTLA.

The footage released shows the pair inching closer toward each other before throwing punches, as other students in the classroom film the incident on their phones. It also shows multiple people trying to pull the student away from Riley.

The student reportedly wasn’t wearing the school’s “proper uniform,” KTLA reported. When asked to leave the class, the student reportedly refused to do so and reportedly used a racial epithet against Riley. A bleeped version of the student’s statements appear in the video. The footage also shows the student throwing what appears to be a basketball at Riley before the punches begin.

Riley, 64, was held on $50,000 bail on Friday night, according to Los Angeles news station KCBS-TV. He has since been released, after posting bail. The student, meanwhile, was taken to a local hospital and has since been released.

One parent told KCBS-TV that she was “shocked” by the incident, asking, “Why did it have to escalate to this point?”

A number of students defended Riley. One person told KTLA that Riley “was a really nice teacher” who “always had a really good relationship with every student.”

Los Angeles Unified School District’s chief communications officer, Shannon Haber, gave the following statement to Yahoo Lifestyle regarding the incident.

“We are extremely disturbed by the reports of the events that occurred at Maywood Academy High School. We take this matter very seriously and do not condone violence or intolerance of any kind. Los Angeles Unified is cooperating with law enforcement in investigating this incident. Crisis counselors and additional School Police patrols will be at the school on Monday to support our students and staff.”

According to local news outlets, the sheriff’s special victims unit is investigating the incident.





Geez. Rolling Eyes

Agreed! Jr clearly didn't know what to do when Grandpa finally snapped!Roll

But I also think he shouldn't have resorted to violence first.

I find it interesting that the students trying to break up the fight are all female, while it is the male students recording it with their phones.

What this teacher did clearly wasn't ok, but at the same time I think I understand it because you must get so sick of the complete disrespect from punks year after year.
He snapped, and now a man who by all other accounts has been a great teacher, is out of job, out of a career and possibly going to jail. While juniors parents sue the school district for their son, "the victim."

Probably true. Most kids today have very little respect for anything, no manners, etc. Evil or Very Mad

Yes, but I just feel older than most of them nowadays. I think I felt older when I was their age!

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Community members have raised more than $76,000 for a Los Angeles-area teacher captured on video punching a student who had repeatedly called him a racial slur and other names.

A Gofundme page had raised $76,700 by Tuesday for Marston Riley, a music teacher at Maywood Academy High School.

Video posted to social media shows Riley, who is black, repeatedly hitting the student, who returns some of the blows. Before the scuffle, the video showed the student throwing a basketball at the 64-year-old Riley and repeatedly calling him names.

The student was treated for minor injuries, and Riley was released on bond after being arrested on suspicion of child abuse.

The school district said Monday that administrators have met with students, staff and parents "to begin the healing process."





Seems A LOT of the students and parents have come together in defense of the teacher.
