MT. ULLA, NC — A West Rowan High School teacher and coach, seen on cell phone video throwing a student to the ground, is resigning.

The school district suspended Brian Linville without pay after his arrest for simple assault earlier this month.

Deputies say the student tried to walk off with Linville’s laptop, leading to the confrontation.  WCCB Charlotte has learned his resignation is effective June 12.
