The disruptive war was captured on video last Friday showing a student throwing the 17-year-old victim to the ground and stomping repeatedly on the head. The alleged attacker is facing aggravated assault charge.
Video of the incident on a mobile phone shows another student lying on the ground with his head locked by the teacher.
Pittsburgh Public Schools police are investigating the incident.
