Flagler student who violently attacked teacher’s aid over Nintendo Switch sues school district

FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. — The Flagler County student seen on surveillance video attacking a teacher’s aid last year is now suing the school district.


18-year-old Brendan Depa pleaded no contest to a first-degree felony charge for aggravated battery of a school employee.

However, Depa is suing the school in civil court, arguing Flagler County Schools did not follow the correct steps in addressing his documented behavioral and mental issues.
