New Port Richey, Florida -- A 13-year-old student at AMI Kids Pasco was arrested at school Thursday morning after he attacked his teacher who tried to get between him and another student.
Fellow classmates told police the teen was getting into it with another student over a seat in the classroom when the teacher stepped in. That's when, they say, he put the teacher in a choke hold, cutting off her airway -- and he continued until other students pulled him off of her.
The teacher was understandably upset, as noted in the arrest report, and suffered muscular neck pain.
The boy was charged with battery on a school employee.
