Intoxicated Student Confronts Teacher In Classroom, Goes Viral!
The social media platforms have been buzzing with videos capturing a disturbing incident where an allegedly intoxicated student confronts teacher in classroom. The footage, which quickly went viral, depicted a heated confrontation between a male student and a female teacher who suspected him of consuming alcohol.
According to the teacher, the incident unfolded during one of her lectures when the student unexpectedly barged into the classroom, requesting permission to join the class without actively participating. However, upon observing his behavior, she suspected that he had been drinking and denied his request.
This denial marked the beginning of a heated exchange between the student and the teacher. Allegedly, the student resorted to derogatory language, referring to the teacher as a moron, stupid, or fool.
Furthermore, he claimed that the teacher had labeled him a drunkard.

Despite being asked to leave, the student adamantly refused and continued to argue with the educator, questioning his presence in the classroom. The situation escalated further when another student urged the alleged intoxicated student to depart, citing an upcoming quiz.
The confrontation eventually reached its climax when an adult figure entered the classroom, intervening and instructing the confrontational student to leave. In a separate video, the same student was seen sobbing in a corridor while receiving a stern rebuke from the intervening adult.
Numerous social media users speculated that the incident occurred within a branch of STI College, a private, for-profit educational institution. However, the college has not released an official statement regarding the alleged incident.
Guam Partosa, a law student and community organizer, drew attention to two statutes relevant to the incident. He cited Batas Pambansa 873 Section 1, which states "teachers, professors… et al… in the actual performance of their professional duties or on the occasion of such performance are deemed persons in authority".
Batas Pambansa 873's full provision is:
In applying the provisions of Articles 148 and 151 of this Code, teachers, professors, and persons charged with the supervision of public or duly recognized private schools, colleges and universities, and lawyers in the actual performance of their professional duties or on the occasion of such performance shall be deemed persons in authority.
Additionally, Partosa referred to Batas Pambansa 232, which grants teaching staff special rights and privileges, requiring due respect and protection.
Teachers shall be deemed persons in authority when in the discharge of lawful duties and responsibilities, and shall, therefore, be accorded due respect and protection.
Most school handbooks explicitly prohibit the possession or consumption of alcohol on school premises, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a sober and conducive learning environment.
As the viral video continues to circulate, sparking conversations about student behavior, teacher authority, and adherence to school regulations, this incident serves as a reminder of the challenges faced by educators and the need to foster respectful and safe educational environments for all.
