SEMMES, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a high school girl in south Alabama faces a felony assault charge after attacking a teacher with a stun gun.

Mobile County sheriff's officials say a video shows the girl trying to fight another girl Thursday afternoon at Mary G. Montgomery High School outside Mobile. Authorities said that when a teacher tried to break up the fight, the teen used the stun gun and then ran.

Mobile County Sgt. Joseph Mahoney tells Al.com (http://bit.ly/2blotj9 ) deputies caught the girl and arrested her.

It wasn't known early Friday how the student obtained the stun gun.

Sheriff's officials say she was taken to a youth detention center and charged with felony assault in connection with the attack on the teacher; and misdemeanor assault for striking the other girl in the face.
