A 15-year-old French student held his teacher at gunpoint at their Paris-area school, and the entire incident was caught on tape.
The schoolboy is facing a prison sentence after holding an alleged “replica” pistol at his teacher’s head, shouting “put your head down” as he feigned an execution.
The teen barged into the classroom with the pistol only moments prior. During the entire ordeal, the teacher submissively obeyed his every order.
Filmed on Thursday, the video hit the internet the following day, sparking outrage across all of france.
The boy’s antics drew the attention of President Emmanuel Marcon, who swore to punish the young man (who cannot be identified for legal reasons).
The woman filed charges of “violent threats with a weapon,” which can carry up to half a decade in prison.
According to the Daily Mail, violence has been on the rise in France’s schools.
