Cell phone video captured the intense altercation between the two teenaged boys, along with the desperate attempt by the teacher to separate them.

The teacher can be seen repeatedly striking one boy on the back with the broom's handle as the boys continue to tussle. The teacher first yelled at the teens to stop, and only picked up the broom after they failed to do so and the fight got more heated.

The mother of the boy who was struck by the teacher with the broom said her son's back was bruised from the incident.

The students were suspended for 10 and three days, respectively.
