A Texas high school teacher was caught on camera punching and stomping on a special needs student’s head, according to a report.
In the disturbing footage, the 16 – year-old student appears to hit substitute teacher Tiffani Shadell Lankford in the face at Lehman High School in Kyle – sending her into a fit of rage,according to kvue.com.
Shadell, 32, is shown punching the teen at least three times, pulling her out of a desk and stomping on her head as she lays on the ground.
Lankford, who was busted for domestic violence in 2014, was charged with aggravated assault Friday, according to the station.
The teen’s family was “disturbed” by the attack, their lawyer Paul Batrice said.
“We are shocked and disgusted after seeing the abuse and excessive force used in this teacher’s attempt to discipline a special needs child,” Batrice told the station. “All parents, myself included, should be deeply disturbed by the facts surrounding this attack.”
The teen, who suffers from seizures, was treated for severe injuries.
