DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A student has been suspended after allegedly pelting a Des Moines high school teacher with pencils, striking students with a pipe and books and yelling while standing atop a desk.

Des Moines TV station KCCI reports ( ) Roosevelt High School teacher Greta Standish noticed a problem when the pencils hit her from behind.
