NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) —- Metro police confirm to News 2 that a Metro-Nashville Public Schools teacher has filed a police report following an altercation at Oliver Middle School on the evening of November 1.

According to a statement from Metro Police spokesman, Don Aaron, officers were called to the home of a 44-year-old teacher on Friday. The teacher wanted to report an assault that took place earlier in the day. 

The teacher told officers that a 14-year-old student began arguing with another student when she intervened by stepping between them, attempting to calm them down.  She said the 14-year-old suddenly grabbed her by both shoulders and threw her into a desk to get around her.  Other students took hold of the 2 boys involved and kept them separated.
The teacher was given information on how to take out a petition at Juvenile Court if she chooses.
