EL DORADO, Calif. -- A Union Mine High School student is facing battery charges after an altercation in her classroom over a Donald Trump "Make America Great Again" campaign hat, reports CBS Sacramento. In cellphone video, a teacher is seen trying to subdue fired-up 17-year-old senior Jo-Ann Butler after she became enraged at a classmate for wearing the MAGA hat.

She grabbed the hat off his head.

"That's a racist and hateful symbol," Butler said.

She is now facing two counts of battery, one on her classmate and one on her teacher, who deputies say she slapped as he escorted her from the room.

America's new education crisis: A teacher shortage

  America's new education crisis: A teacher shortage Students are returning to school with understaffed classrooms as instructors leave for higher paying jobsThe country is facing an education crisis as more teachers leave the profession for other fields, often lured by higher pay. At the same time, colleges have witnessed a plunge in the ranks of students majoring in education, leading to a shrinking pipeline of young classroom teachers.

Butler says she made the scene to express her political feelings.

"Maybe just wake people up in some type of way, because it's not cool, the environment our classroom is in," Butler said.

Her father says he doesn't approve of the way she behaved in class. "Wasn't handled the way I'd like it," Chris Butler said.

Now he's faced with the legal impact of his daughter's alleged criminal act.

All centered around the political divide across the country.

"I don't agree with grabbing someone's hat and verbally talking to them in that way," Chris Butler said. "But as far as the issue being brought up, maybe this is something that needs to be brought up."

The El Dorado Union High School District's clothing policy allows students to wear political symbols.

A statement released by the district reads:

"… Student and staff safety is our highest priority and the UMHS administration will continue to cooperate with the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office as the incident is being investigated."

Besides her arrest, Jo-Ann Butler has been suspended from school for a week.

The El Dorado County District Attorney will likely decide later this week whether she will be formally charged.
