A viral video of a teacher and student brawling led to the arrest and disbarment of the educator in question, authorities report.

Re’Kwon Smith, who was a substitute teacher in the Las Vegas area, was arrested by Clark County School District-assigned law enforcement officers following last month’s documented melee.

Smith, who claims he was called a racial slur, struck the student several times and then began to slap him once he had fallen to the ground.

An arrest report filed by CCSD Police revealed that the student in question told officers he was leaving a class when Smith yelled something at him.

The student claims he didn’t hear Smith because he was wearing headphones.

As the young man walked away, he reportedly heard Smith yell, “Don’t make me lose my job!”

Smith told authorities that he had a door rule, and the student went through the wrong door.

The former educator went on to claim the student called him a “bh a** ni*r,”

Smith responded, “What are you gonna do?”

Witnesses corroborated Smith’s account to an extent, adding that the student was behaving uncouthly towards Smith and was shouting insults.

Afterward, the two engaged in hand-to-hand combat.

Smith was released from custody following his first court appearance and will return to court later this month.

According to NEWS3LV, CCSD Police said Smith was removed from the school district’s substitute pool and is disbarred from ever working for the district again.

“CCSD does not tolerate violence of any kind. Violence in any form is unacceptable and goes against the fundamental principles of education and respect,” the district said in a statement. “Any altercation between a teacher and a student is thoroughly investigated, and appropriate disciplinary action is taken.”
