    A teacher in Muldrow has been charged with a felony after, investigators said, she watched as two students fought on the school campus.

    Police said Julie Boshers, a teacher at Muldrow High School for the past ten years, not only watched the fight but knew it was going to happen.

    A video was taken of the fight. In it, 17-year-old George Brown can be seen getting picked up and body slammed by another student.

    "I just remember being upside down, then being down on the ground and then getting punched in the head," said Brown.

    Brown said he's constantly bullied at school, and this fight was a result of that.

    But the most upsetting thing about this video, Brown said, is that Boshers didn't do anything to stop it.

    Brown's mother, Mary, said watching the video made her angry.

    "As a mother, that's hard to see your son being body slammed by another kid, while the teacher is standing there watching and not doing anything about it," said Brown.

    Brown said what makes it worse is the boy who body slammed her son is Boshers' own son.

    Investigators said not only did Boshers do nothing to stop the fight, she knew it was going to happen because her son told her about it minutes before.

    "And everybody is all hush-hush about it. Don't say nothing, don't do nothing," said Brown.

    Brown said she's frustrated something like this could happen.

    As it turns out, so were the Muldrow Police.

    "She was genuinely surprised when I arrived at her front door," said Mark Harkins with the Muldrow Police Department.

    Harkins said what Broshers did was a felony.

    "According to Oklahoma State Statute, that is allowing child abuse," said Harkins.

    Boshers was arrested not long after, but that's little comfort to the mom who worries if what happened to her son could happen again.

    "I don't like the bullying. I'm tired of the bullying, I'm tired of these teachers," said Brown.

    Boshers is out on bond. Her first court appearance is scheduled for November 30.
