An Arkansas high school student may face criminal charges after he lit a cigar in a classroom and blew smoke in his teacher’s face three times, the Smoking Gun reports.
Teacher Robert Holley told North Little Rock police that the incident occurred when 18-year-old Christopher Dunn showed up to take a final exam.
Dunn, who has caused a number of problems for Holley throughout the year, refused to take the exam outside the classroom when Holley instructed him to and when Holley threatened to call a campus supervisor via intercom, Dunn responded “Hit that button, I dare you.”
While Holley started to write Dunn up, the teen lit a cigar and proceeded to blow smoke in Holley’s face three times (though the video only shows this happening this once).
Dunn was eventually removed from the classroom by a campus supervisor, and before leaving, looked over his shoulder at Holley and said “I’ll be back.”
Police are calling the incident insult or abuse of a teacher, which is a misdemeanor crime. The case is currently under review, where county prosecutors will determine whether or not to file charges against Dunn.
