RALEIGH, NC - A North Carolina high school teacher has resigned after video surfaced that appears to show him choking a student, WNCN reported.
Wake County Public Schools confirmed that Brian Kelley, an instructor in the Healthful Living Department, resigned his job at the school effective June 15.
The teacher had been suspended after a video tweet was posted that showed him with his hands around an unidentified student's neck in May. In the 6-second clip, the teacher holds the student up against a wall, before shoving him into a classroom.
The school district had launched an investigation into the matter, according to WRAL. It was not immediately clear if Kelley's resignation was linked to the outcome of the probe or independent of the investigation.
