Police say a Southern California high school freshman has been arrested after posting a video showing him stalking, bullying and attacking a classmate.

San Bernardino schools police Chief Joseph Paulino says the alleged bully was arrested for investigation of battery on the grounds of Cajon High School. Paulino says the 14-year-old boy probably would have gotten away with it if he hadn't posted the video Friday on Facebook. Now he faces expulsion.

The 15-year-old victim was pushed and punched but not seriously injured. The video, which was captioned how to "deal with a kid with a big mouth," shows the victim continually walking away from the bully. Excerpts of the video were included in NBC4's report below.

Paulino says the student who took the video was disciplined. Efforts by The Associated Press to reach the suspected bully weren't immediately successful.

Cajon High is in the city of San Bernardino, 60 miles east of Los Angeles.
