A Kentucky teacher William Bennett filmed during a violent argument with a 16-year-old student has been fired.

William Bennett, a former science teacher at the Marion C. Moore School in Louisville, was fired after an investigation by Jefferson County Public Schools found he “escalated the situation” and made “inappropriate comments,” according to a resignation letter from Insider.

Bennett had been hired by the county to do “non-teaching assignments” even after the video of the incident went viral in August.

A timeline in the letter states that the altercation began when the student Jamir Strane hit Bennett on the back of the head. In a subsequent fight, Bennett pushed Strane to the ground and put his “whole body weight on him”.

When onlookers mocked him for getting out, Strane kept trying to beat Bennett, and when the teenager broke free, the teacher started pulling his hair, showing footage of the altercation.

Strane said the altercation began after Bennett complained about his neck gaiter and made racially charged remarks to him.

“He said, ‘You’re just going to be another black boy,'” Strane told the WDRB. “I will write it in English. He said, ‘You will end up dead on the street’, in my mind, like all my friends. ”

The teenager was suspended for 10 days and charged with assault in the incident.

It was a far cry from Bennett’s first encounter with students. While teaching at a nearby Hardin County School in 1999, the teacher also grabbed a student who had misbehaved.
