SUBURBAN WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.
— – An alleged fight between a student and a substitute teacher at Palm Beach Lakes High School is under investigation after a student captured 17 seconds of the scuffle on a cell phone.

The video of the alleged brawl was posted on Facebook where many students shared and commented on the clip titled, “Bol only at Palm Beach Lakes smh…”

The clip begins with what appears as a teacher and student standing nose-to-nose in the middle of a classroom. The student is seen shoving the teacher and then the instructor and teen are seen throwing punches. The video ends as the student runs out of the classroom.

“A teacher should, you know, stand up for himself, but not to go on ahead and you know. I’m speechless right now,” said Darrel Phillips, a Palm Beach Lakes High senior.

The name of the substitute teacher is unknown, but many students like Phillips identified him as “Mr. Smith” or “Smitty.”
