A Texas teacher was arrested and charged with assault after a video surfaced that appears to show her repeatedly smacking a student in the head.

The Associated Press reported that the cellphone video, which has an emoji overlay and was posted by the Beaumont Enterprise and other sites, shows the teacher at a Beaumont high school swiping papers off the student's desk, slapping him five times and scolding him for being a disruption. 



The Beaumont school district said the geometry teacher was arrested Friday and placed on leave. Officials say the district "does not condone employees abusing any child."

Sixty-three-year-old Mary Hastings was booked into the Jefferson County jail on a misdemeanor count of assault and posted $2,500 bond. A phone listing for her could not be found for comment.
