PALM COAST, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Florida middle school teacher was arrested after he removed a student from his classroom and pushed him.

Flagler County Sheriff's officials say the Tuesday morning incident began when the Buddy Taylor Middle School teacher asked the 14-year-old student to stop playing music on his computer.

When the student refused, the teacher muted the sound. The student turned it back on.

This continued two more times until the teacher took the computer.

The student used expletives, demanding his computer back. Another student filmed the incident.

The teacher was arrested Wednesday on a simple battery charge.
