A Brooklyn elementary teacher was arrested after kicking a 12-year-old boy in the chest.

Roger Jassie, 57, was at School of the Future Junior High on Tuesday around when he became angry with a boy who was blocking another student from entering the classroom. Roger and the boy got into an argument and he then kicked the boy in the chest. The boy had to go to the hospital as a result after complaining that he was in pain.
