A student who got into a verbal altercation with a Baltimore high school teacher Wednesday allegedly punched the teacher in the face, according to a viral video posted on Facebook.
The video shows the student at Frederick Douglass High School getting into a verbal altercation with the teacher when the situation escalated.
Ivan Baker, who posted the video on Facebook on Wednesday evening, said the teacher had just returned to the classroom after taking leave for cancer surgery.
WBAL reported that the teacher in the video is a highly-respected high school science teacher and church leader.
The teacher did not return to class Thursday, and it is unclear when or if she will return to her classroom at Frederick Douglass High School, according to WBAL.
