A high school student was arrested and charged after a social media video showing her standing on top of a desk and hitting her teacher was posted.

On Monday, Lyneria Lynn Glover, a 17-year-old student at Calhoun County High School in St. Matthews, S.C., allegedly stood on top of her teacher’s desk, trying to kick the elderly man who sat in a chair, while her classmates laughed.

When the teacher stood up, she allegedly smacked him on his head and pushed his shoulders, stomping on the desk.

“Get off the desk,” said the man, adding something inaudible, as Glover sat in his chair and put her feet up on his desk.

Steve Aaron Wilson, the superintendent of Calhoun County Public Schools, tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the Monday video was shocking. “We investigated and suspended the student and recommended her for expulsion,” he says. {snip} Wilson says the unnamed teacher is on administrative leave and would not provide further details.

A representative of the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the teen has been charged with public disorderly conduct and third-degree assault and battery, both of which are misdemeanors. If convicted, Glover could be jailed for a period of 30 days for each charge or pay fines.
