Rochester, N.Y. - A Charlotte High School teacher's aide was charged with harassment for an incident this week involving a student.
Rochester Police said the teacher's aide will have to answer to the charge in court in the next two weeks.
Tyrell Green was suspended the day of the incident.
13WHAM was sent cell phone video of the Monday incident that shows an adult getting into an argument with 17-year-old senior, Allyson Henderson.
In the video the two argue, they appear to swat their arms at each other, and then you can see the teacher's aide push Henderson onto a lunch table. Another staff member eventually separated the two.
"He put his hands in my face first, then I took his hand out of my face," said Allyson Henderson. "That's when he put his hands on me."
Henderson said she got into a disagreement with Green two weeks before when she gave Green the middle finger in response to something Green said. However, she never thought Green would attack her like this.
"I was so mad...like I just couldn't believe it happened," Henderson said about the fight with Green. "At first I didn't think it was that traumatizing as it would be, but now I'm scared because I'm worried about someone following me home," she said.
Henderson says the fight happened in the cafeteria on Wednesday. She walked up to the table where Green and another staff member were sitting. She was trying to sign up for the talent show, but she was told she couldn't. Henderson says she walked away angrily, but overheard Green and the other staff member make a comment about her.
That sparked the verbal argument which quickly escalated into a physical altercation.
"[Green] was immediately removed from the school and an investigation is underway," Interim Superintendent Bolgen Vargas said in a statement. "We do not tolerate violence in our schools."
Henderson said she also took out an order of protection against Green.
"I'm a lady. I'm not a man. You don't put your hands on a lady," Henderson said.
She said her neck and back were injured in the fight.
Charlotte High students went home with a letter this week from the principal.
Principal Michael Allen II said, "We take your child's safety seriously. This incident is by no means indicative of the relationship that myself and staff have with students."
