NORTH CHARLESTON, SC -

Just before noon Tuesday police were called to North Charleston High School in reference to a teacher being assaulted.

When police arrived the teacher said the student/suspect was told to stop talking repeatedly and he continued to talk.  The teacher approached the student and he placed his fingers in his ears.  The teacher told the student he would be getting an office referral and then the student/suspect stood up and hit the teacher in the face. 

The teacher fell to the ground and the student/suspect continued hitting her until other students pulled him off.

The teacher was sent to MUSC for x-rays.  She sustained a bump on her forehead and redness on other parts of her head.

The student/suspect told police he was feeling frustrated and pressured so he lashed out.  Authorities took the student into custody and transported him to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
