A Dallas middle school student is charged with an assault that sent a teacher to the hospital.
Dallas Independent School District spokeswoman Libby Daniels said the altercation happened at Comstock Middle School Thursday morning when students were arriving at school.
The 14-year-old eighth grader reportedly didn’t have proper identification and got angry.
He then pushed the teacher and both of them went through a glass panel in the foyer of the school, Daniels said.
She said school security quickly intervened and took the student to a detention center. He had only minor superficial cuts.
The teacher was rushed to Baylor Medical Center where he received stitches for a gash in his harm. He is expected to return to school on Monday.
It is unclear how long the student will remain in juvenile detention.
“He was charged with assault, so he will face some charges here and we’ll have to see what pursues after they go through that whole process,” Daniels said.
