PORT ORANGE, Fla. – A Central Florida teacher has been arrested after allegedly blasting music, and disrupting state testing in his classroom.

Martin Reese posted a livestream of the entire thing on Instagram on Tuesday.

The Creekside Middle School art teacher said he does not like FSA testing.

He said he recorded the 50-minute-long video knowing that he was going to be fired for it.

Creekside Middle in Port Orange was briefly placed on lockdown, while Volusia County Sheriff’s deputies took Reese into custody.

It is unclear if the students were able to finish the tests.

Reese was charged with disrupting a school function and disorderly conduct.

He has since bonded out of jail.
