LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Officers with the Lufkin ISD Police Department arrested high school student Tevin Dewayne Sanders in October 2016 for allegedly coming up behind a teacher who was working late and putting a cord in front of her neck. His trial begins 9 a.m. Wednesday morning. 

The teen is facing first-degree felony charges of assault on a public servant. 

When Lufkin ISD police first questioned the teen about what had happened he said he was conducting a fight or flight experiment and intentionally scared the teacher to test her reaction.

Surveillance video shows Sanders carrying a white cord similar to a cell phone charger.

An affidavit states in September of that same year a Lufkin ISD police officer warned Sanders about bothering the alleged victim.

The affidavit also states that Sanders sent an e-mail to the teacher allegedly apologizing for a "misguided experimentation.”
