The fight broke out Monday at 12:30 p.m. when Marlina Martinez, 15, began applying makeup at the end of her math class.

Martinez said her female teacher, who is not being identified because she is not yet facing any charges, confiscated her makeup. Martinez then called her mother on her cellphone to have her demand that her teacher give her back the makeup.

When Martinez gave her teacher the phone to talk to her mother, the teacher confiscated the phone. At that point, Martinez confronted her teacher and loudly demanded to have her phone back.

The incident developed into a shoving match and then escalated into a fight. Eventually, the pair end up on the classroom floor as other students try to pull them apart.

The entire incident was captured on cellphone video by another student in the class, who then posted it to his Facebook page.

Stockton Unified School District spokesperson Dianne Barth acknowledged the video is shocking to watch. "It was a regrettable incident and very unusual. I don't recall an incident like this happening in the last several years," Barth said.

Barth said the teacher has been put on paid administrative leave as the incident is investigated. "I'm not sure what happened.

I can't even tell by looking at the video what happened once the initial pushing started. I don't know," Barth said.

Martinez was arrested by school district police on an assault charge. She has been suspended for five days and has a meeting with her principal on Thursday to learn if she will be expelled.

She admits she should not have confronted her teacher.

"I know I did wrong by like going up to her and trying to get my stuff, but from the get-go she should have gone and pushed that button," said Martinez, referring to a button in each classrooms teachers can use to summon security.

Martinez's grandmother agreed. "When they see the student that is getting aggressive or loud, they should walk away, push whatever button they have to push for the security and they should step outside," Alice Gonzalez said.

Martinez showed off a bump on her forehead and scratches on her neck and upper back she received in the fight.

Barth said the teacher was also "roughed up" and has a black eye.

      Aussie uploads good stuff, but you are 100% right slamminsammy.... Aussie also uploaded a video 5 minutes ago which I loved but he ripped the LOWEST QUALITY 240p quality on his videos... he needs to click HD 720p, and then take the video from youtube! The quality of sound AND VIDIO is literally twice as good.

      THESE are good video, just HORRIBLE QUALITY by Ausssie... cmon bro get the better quality, youre really hampering the awesomeness of these videos

    • @puckett69 - Yup, in the 80's I got the paddle or ruler a few times. I didn't dare tell my dad about it either, because if I did he would know I screwed up and would then get the belt which was much worse. Then again, when I did get the paddle I knew I deserved it, and didn't grow up with any sense of entitlement like kids today.

    • @puckett69 They should start fining parents when kids do things like this. You are disturbing the class and preventing the teacher from teaching. Nothing gets a parent to discipline there kids then taking money right from the parents pockets.

      Why ? So the next kid can do whatever the hell he or she wants to ?

      How can you blame the teacher for trying to maintain discipline ? That's part of their job and telling them to step aside is exactly how you guarantee that the students will do whatever the hell they want to.

      Between the entitlement generation , the "my little angel can do no wrong" shit , and the complete lack of authority to discipline the little bastards , it's a wonder the teachers even bother g More..

      She did learn something that day though. If you hit, you might get hit back.

    • @Formalz Even if a contract, which was signed by you and your parents, specifically states that the school reserves the right to confiscate your cellphones? Plus, as long as they aren't going through text messages and plan to return the phone after a set period of time, the school isn't doing anything illegal. In loco parentis.

    • @Buckey99 - What you've stated is legally correct, but it's absolutely morally wrong. Just because a "person" is under the age of 18 doesn't mean they shouldn't be afforded constitutional and natural rights. This video is emblematic of the problems in our schools: teachers/staff are prison keepers. Children should not be kept this way, that woman stole her property - she should have just kicked her out of class.

  • A friend of mine was a prison guard while he finished up his teaching degree. He went on to become a high school teacher in an infested area. Shortly after he quit teaching and went back to being a prison guard. He said if you are going to be a zoo keeper you might as well do it where you can use force on the animals to get them to comply.
