Teacher’s Aide Arrested After Video Of Him Choke-Slamming His Mouthy Student Goes Viral

A 39-year-old Milwaukee teaching aide has been arrested after an incident of him choke slamming a 14-year-old into a row of desks and chairs has made the internet rounds.

The video shows the teacher’s aide, whose name has not been released, holding the student down on the ground by his neck while shouting expletives at him.

Fox News interviewed a student in the freshman biology class at Bay View High School who witnessed the incident, who revealed that the student was the instigator.

“The student was cussing at him and everything and he was like ‘come on — let’s go in the hallway,'” Angel Quiles said.

The teacher’s aide was arrested for physical abuse of a child. The student was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

A statement released by Tony Tagliavia, a spokesperson for Milwaukee Public Schools, said:

“MPS finds this incident deeply disturbing. As soon as the school administration was notified of the incident, the Milwaukee Police Department was contacted and the staff member was removed from the classroom. We are cooperating with MPD. This staff member – who is a paraprofessional (teacher aide) – faces disciplinary action, including termination.”

Obviously, a 39-year-old man shouldn’t choke slam a 14-year-old kid, but I can all but guarantee the next time that little piss ant thinks about berating a grown ass man, he may show a little restraint. This dude will get fired and likely won’t be allowed to teach ever again, and in my opinion that’s more than enough punishment. But at the end of the day, the only thing he’s really guilty of is teaching a kid some goddamn manners. Sometimes the most important lessons are the hardest to learn.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
