BRANDYWINE, Md. (AP) - A substitute teacher in Maryland has been removed from the classroom after a video surfaced showing him using a belt on students.

WTTG-TV (https://bit.ly/1LfrQi7 ) reports the incident happened last Friday at Gwynn Park Middle School in Prince George’s County.

Officials say in the video the teacher has what appears to be a belt in his hand and hit students on the floor.

The school system says the substitute teacher - whose name they did not provide - has been removed from the classroom and law enforcement is now involved.

It is unclear if the teacher will face charges.
