A Wisconsin teachers aide has been arrested after being caught on video brutally beating a student inside a classroom Wednesday morning, WDJT reports.

In the video, the 39-year-old staff member at Bay View High School in Milwaukee is seen roughly pushing a 14-year-old student onto a desk before holding him by the neck and pushing him down to the floor. 

"What the f—k I tell you, motherf—ker?" the unidentified aide can be heard saying in the video.

Students at the school said that the teacher and student had been arguing back and forth for a while. The video doesn't show what led up to the altercation, but classmates said that the student was being "disrespectful," WDJT reports. 

"This teacher's just bogus," said one student. "But then again, the kid shouldn't have been talking stuff." 

The student was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries, and the teacher was arrested for physical abuse of a child.

As soon as the school administration was notified of the incident, the Milwaukee Police Department was contacted and the staff member was removed from the classroom. We are cooperating with MPD. This staff member—who is a paraprofessional (teacher aide)—faces disciplinary action, including termination."
