SEATTLE WA, (KIRO/CVNN) - A video, posted to social media on Friday, appears to show a teacher grab a student and shove him, pushing him to the floor.

The teen's dad now wants the teacher in jail.

The student involved in the incident is 13-year-old Jueliyan Williams.

Jueliyan said the incident started with confusion over the new semester class schedule. A teacher told him to move to a different classroom then took his cell phone. That’s when Jueliyan said things escalated.

"I was asking for my phone and he was like I’ll break your phone and I was like ok, do it but I’m going to call my dad. He was like, do I need to use physical force with you, and I was like do it,” Jueliyan said.

Jueliyan said the next thing he knew, he was on the floor.

“I was on the floor…and he was pushing me back towards the door and I hit the wall with the side of my head,” Jueliyan said. “Then I fell down again and hit my head."

A student recorded video of Jueliyan on the floor.

"First it was all black,” Jueliyan said. “All I could do was hear what people were saying."

Tremond Williams, Jueliyan's father, said the school didn't notify him after incident happened.

Williams said he saw the video of the incident on social media after students posted it.

“My heart's racing, you know. I don't know if he's hurt, Williams said. “I see another video and he's straight laying on the ground not moving at all."

The school stated it took, "appropriate measures and acted immediately with the safety of our staff and students in mind," after being notified of the incident.

The matter is under investigation, according to school officials.
