Student Attacks Teacher’s Aide at Florida School (VIDEO)

On February 21, 2023, Brendan J. Depa allegedly assaulted Joan Naydich, teacher’s aide at Matanzas High School in Palm Coast, Florida. Depa, who stands six-feet-six inches tall and weighs 270 pounds rushed Naydich, shoving her full-force to the floor. She hit her head on the tile, knocking her unconscious.

Video footage shows the assailant jumping onto the downed woman and beating her with his fists until other employees intervened. It is estimated that Depa landed 15 blows before help arrived. Five staff members eventually pulled him off Naydich and held him until deputies arrived.

Cops handcuffed Depa and took him to jail. He was charged with aggravated battery on a school board employee, a first-degree felony. If convicted, Depa could spend thirty years behind bars. His bail was set at $1 million.

Although Depa is only seventeen, he already has three arrests for battery. Because of his age, officials would not release details of those alleged assaults.

After his arrest, cops said Depa vowed to kill Naydich once he is released. He told lawmen he attacked her because she took his Nintendo Switch from him. Naydich denies that. “I just want to set the record straight,” she said. “I never took the Nintendo Switch from him. I’ve been told this was unfortunately misinformation.”

I have published the video released by the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.
