The assault occurred at Langham Creek High School in Houston on Thursday when students from Aragon Middle School attacked assistant baseball coach and high school physics teacher Michael Shott during a baseball practice, according to reports.
Cellphone video posted on social mediashows Shott sprinting away at full speed through the high school parking lot, attempting to evade several pursuing students while others follow, taking videos of the attack on their phones.
At one point, the attackers catch up and force their coach to the ground, before he gets up and runs out into an area of the parking lot away from them.
Shott’s mother, Peggy Shott, told KTRK that her son suffered a broken arm as a result.
“He’s doing fine. He’s at home. He has a broken arm, but the kids said that he’s doing what he’s always done and he’s fine,” she said.
“The reason it happened to him was because he was doing his job. He stopped the kids. Well, there was only one kid at first. The reason the others came back is because they didn’t like him stopping them.”
Students and social media users say the coach was jumped because he told the students they couldn’t ride dirt bikes or ATVs on school grounds, KABB reported.
