A North Carolina high school student is accused of slapping his teacher twice during a profanity-filled classroom discussion.

A video that went viral shows the teenager from Parkland High School, in Winston-Salem, arguing and physically attacking his teacher.

After the first strike, the teacher remained defiant, sitting with their legs crossed in her chair, asking, “do you think that affected me, anyway?”

The student then reapproached the educator and slapped her before walking away, asking, “Do you want me to hit you again?”

“I don't want it,” the woman responds, but the teenager approaches and hits her in the face a second time.

Suddenly the attacker says:

“The f–k’s wrong with you, what you gonna do, still sit in that chair ’cause you a bitch. Ain’t nobody even coming, you got slapped,” says the student, seemingly singing and dancing.

“Bitch, go back to teaching.”NEW: North Carolina high school student arrested after assaulting his teacher as students in the class filmed and laughed.

The teen is now facing three misdemeanor charges for assault on a government official.

Unlike many other school assault cases, the district attorney…

The rest of the students reportedly reacted to the attacks with laughter and mockery.

“This behavior will not be tolerated. It is not acceptable for students to put their hands on a teacher in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools,” said Tricia McManus, Superintendent of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools.

“My focus now is to ensure that our teacher is cared for and has the support necessary to overcome the lasting effects of this incident,” she added.

Regarding this news, this Tuesday a safe custody order was issued for three misdemeanors against the student for assault on a government official.

“We all agree that this incident was deplorable and outrageous to the community and community organizations. “We should all be outraged when those who educate us can be attacked,” said Sheriff Bobby F. Kimbrough Jr.

Parkland High School Principal Noel Keener warned that the student would also face disciplinary action and reiterated that his behavior did not reflect the school's expectations.

“Please know that this video does not reflect our expectations of Parkland High School students. We are working with district staff to address this immediately and ensure that behavior like this is not tolerated in our school and district,” he said.
