CALIFORNIA (PIX11) — A wild fight between a California student and her teacher was caught on video.

According to officials, the brawl started after the teacher took away the student’s makeup at Cesar Chavez High School in Stockton.

The 15-year-old, identified as Marlina Martinez, then used her cellphone in class to call her mom, but the teacher then confiscated the phone.

They got into a shouting and shoving match, and eventually wound up on the ground brawling.

After the fight, the teen was arrested, and the teacher was placed on paid administrative leave.

    The Teacher should of been detained as well! Hitting a child like that it did not look like self defense at all!

      You want to act like a man then you get treated like one! School teachers take toooo much crap from students. Good for that student!

        fuck off…since when is it appropriate for students to use their cell phones during class…it's not? She was trying to call her mother, to tell her that the teacher took her makeup away? Get the fuck out of here with that shit, you are there to learn, not to do your make up, not to use your cell phone. It's easy, if you don't want to go to school, then don't.

      Sorry to the first person that wrote that the teacher should have been detained! Are you watching the same video that kid put her hands on the teacher, it’s one to be an adult and not hit a child is another to let a child hit you. That kid was aggressive gave the first initial attack and was planning to continue attacking. That teacher was in danger and HAD to defend herself!!!
      Just because you shouldn’t hit a minor doesn’t mean your going to let one beat you!!!

      You don't even know what you are saying… Look at the video and you will see who threw the first punch… Put yourself in the same position and then say whether or not you would have reacted the same way, defending yourself…

    Kids attend school to learn. I do not understand the need for a cell phone and makeup use in class. The teacher is right. This is the reason why America has so many dropouts in high school because teachers fail to react.

    Wow times have surely changed! This young adult took it to another level. There is no respect and that is due to the lack of parenting for these young adults today! They or she wanted to treat some one in that manner then she welcomed the same in return for the her obnoxious behavior! The kids they don't want structure they want whatever they think the world should bend and kiss their azz these days. They don't want consequences for their action but their actions should be tolerated by those they bullie and belittle!! Mother & Father should be responsible just as much as the kid because it reflects what is going on at home!!

    I agree with the teacher taking the makeup and the phone. Where I have a problem is that the teacher was not arrested too and on paid leave……huh????? She could have easily prevented the confrontation by walking away from the girl when she pushed her and went to get security, the principal, another teacher something. It's bad enough the kids are reverting to violence but do we need our instructors doing the same? Someone has to be the adult.

      Where are you from! If the kid had the balls to push the teacher do you really think she would have let her walk away to get security or the principal. Have you never been in a conflict! This kid was willing to pound that teacher and if she would have turned her back she would have got it from behind!
      Look at the video look at her posture, her actions this kid was going to give it to the teacher no matter what!

    • Hoz

      Look at her pounding her fist before she entered the teacher’s space. She violated the teachers space, threaten her and put her hands on her. The teacher protected herself. I only wish the teacher would have given her a beating instead of a fight! That would have set the authority in that class room for as long as she worked there!
      To many politically correct and liberals let our kids get away with to much putting the blame on everyone but the kid and then when the kid kills someone the ask what went wrong!
      I’ll tell you what went wrong you tied parents hands, you took away a teachers authority and respect. These kids govern themselves and you don’t want to blame them so they do what they want and get away with it!!!!
      Take a look at your future, people with no respect towards you when you get older and will sooner knock you down instead of help you across the street!!!

    Wow, teacher got in that tail, huh? Looks like the student started it. If she had only obeyed… yea, I know… when was the last time a child obeyed authority…? The student is on the fast track to nowhere. What she need make-up for anyway? Jenny called, Ms. Martinez… you need a weight-loss program…

    Typical Niggers, poor teacher didn't do anything wrong, the teacher was pushed first and had every right to defend herself from a gorilla.
