The meltdown in this Tennessee classroom was so bad the teacher ended up in handcuffs. WTVF-TV in Nashville has this account of what happened when students seemed not to heed the dictums of veteran teacher Donald Wood:

Wood picked up a metal trash can and slammed it to the ground. Students then began to leave the classroom. Witnesses said Wood then picked up a chair and threw it at the window – breaking the glass.

“He picked a chair and threw it on the ground – not at a student, but towards a student, but it was close – and that’s when I got up and started walking away,” said junior Joshua Jenkins. “Once everybody started running out he picked up a chair and threw it out the window and it shattered.”
