BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors say they are not going to charge a Florida high school teacher who punched a student in a video that was recorded on a cell phone.

Prosecutor Brian Trehy said students who witnessed the punch said the student made contact first and the Tampa Bay-area teacher was responding.

The 64-year-old Sandra Hadsock was arrested last month after she hit a student who was calling her vulgar names. The veteran teacher says she hopes she'll be allowed to return to the classroom, but it's still unclear if that will happen.
