Middle Schoolers Break Coach’s Arm After They Chase and Beat him


    A group of middle schoolers were caught on video beating and chasing down a Texas physics teacher. The educator’s arm was broken during the attack.

    According to reports, during baseball practice on Thursday, students from Aragon Middle School attacked assistant baseball coach and high school physics teacher Michael Shott. The attack took place at Langham Creek High School in Houston.

    Cell phone video posted on social media shows Shott running as fast as possible through the high school parking lot while trying to get away from the students chasing him. Other youngsters could be seen following the attackers, trying to record the incident on their cell phones.

    The attackers did catch up to the coach, during one point in the video, and were able to force him to the ground. Shott was able to stand again and run to an area of the parking lot, distancing himself them the middle schoolers.

    Peggy Shott, Shott’s mother, told KTRK that her son walked away with a broken arm following the incident.

    “He’s doing fine. He’s at home. He has a broken arm, but the kids said that he’s doing what he’s always done, and he’s fine,” she said.

    “The reason it happened to him was because he was doing his job. He stopped the kids. Well, there was only one kid at first. The reason the others came back is because they didn’t like him stopping them.”

    KABB reported that students and social media users claim Shott was beaten because he told them they could not ride dirt bikes or ATVs on school property.

    Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District has confirmed receiving threats of more violence via social media following Thursdays’ violence. The threats sparked the deployment of security officers at the school.

    “Our campuses must be the safest places in our community for students, staff, and visitors,” school officials said in a statement Friday. “We will not tolerate anyone compromising the safe environment of our campuses and will address violations to the greatest extent possible.”

    District officials said in a letter to parents that four students involved in the attack were taken into custody. They will be disciplined according to the code of conduct.

    It is unclear if charges will be filed against the juveniles.
