      A New Bedford student who threw a chair in the direction of teacher at New Bedford High School has been expelled.

      The incident was captured on video by a fellow student.
      There is now a no trespass order against Roselus and an investigation is ongoing into the behavior of other students in the class.
      There is also an investigation into the failure of the school to learn about and deal with the incident.
      Roselus was charged with assault by means of a dangerous weapon, disturbing the school, and malicious destruction of personal property.
