An Alabama teenager is facing felony assault charges after she used a stun gun on a teacher trying to break up a fight between her and another girl.
Mobile County sheriff’s officials say that a video shows the teen trying to fight another girl at Mary G. Montgomery High School outside Mobile on Thursday afternoon, according to the Associated Press.
Authorities say a teacher stepped in to try to break up the fight, when the girl tasered him with a stun gun and ran.
Students looked on in shock as she ran away through the school’s parking lot.
Deputies arrested the girl despite her efforts to flee and took her to Strickland Youth Center, a juvenile detention facility, Sgt. Joseph Mahoney told AL.com.
She has been charged with felony assault for tasering the teacher and misdemeanor assault for striking the other girl in the face.
Police are not releasing the girl’s identity because she is a minor.
