Maryland – A Prince George’s County Public Schools teacher is facing charges in connection with a physical altercation with a student inside of a classroom at Largo High School on Friday. The teacher is 36-year-old Vivian Noirie of Paul Drive in Clinton. Detectives are also petitioning for charges against the student through the juvenile court system.
On Friday, at approximately 10:25 am, the teacher and the student got into physical confrontations inside of a classroom. Neither the student or teacher required medical attention.
The physical assaults were caught on cell phone video. Moments after, Prince George’s County Police officers were notified and investigators were summoned to the school.
The preliminary investigation reveals the student, a 17-year-old, was upset with the teacher for contacting the student’s parents the night before and approached the teacher. During that encounter, the student admits to stepping on the teacher’s foot and bumping into the teacher with her shoulder. The teacher then repeatedly struck the student. School employees quickly stepped in and separated the teacher and student. Once they were separated, the student grabbed the teacher from behind and repeatedly struck her before once again being separated.
The teacher, Noirie, is charged with physical child abuse and second degree assault. Due to the student’s status as a juvenile, we will not be releasing any further details regarding the nature of the charges detectives are pursuing against the student.
