Teacher arrested, held “Fight Club” style brawls in classroom

A teacher identified as Angel Footman, has been arrested for holding “Fight Club” style brawls at Griffin Middle School in Tallahassee, Florida.

Footman, 23, is facing four charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor after a School Resource Deputy was alerted on March 24 that students were being allowed to fight in the teacher’s classroom, according to a report from WCTV.

According to court documents, several sixth-grade girls told detectives that they participated in planned fights during school hours, and they allege they were invited back for additional fights. They also reported that Footman made statements including “30 seconds, no screaming, no yelling, no phones.”

A detective indicates in a probable cause affidavit that he reviewed videos and identified Footman sitting on her desk, failing to intervene, and making statements including “no screaming, no nothing” and “stop pulling hair.” The document also said no records of Footman reporting the fights to administrators were found.

While Footman denied organizing the fights, she did admit that she failed to stop the fights or report them to administrators at the school.

An arraignment is scheduled for May 4.

Footman is considered innocent until proven guilty.

Fight Club is a popular film, released in 1999, starring actors Brad Pitt and Edward Norton. The two bored men form an underground club with strict rules and fight other men who are fed up with their mundane lives.
