A high school teacher in Knoxville, Tennessee escaped serious injury after a student in her class set fire to her shirt and hair on Penalba, a 23-year-old science teacher at West High School, had turned her back to the class when the 15-year-old boy ran up and set her shirt and hair can only speculate as to why this boy did this.

He admitted to everything and was charged in juvenile court to aggravated assault and evading is your daily source for top animated news.
