Virtual classrooms are the new normal, but that hasn't stopped some kids from misbehaving.

Mercedes Police Chief Dagoberto Chavez Jr. said his department got a call from administration at Harrell Middle School after an 11-year-old student was uploading a pornographic video for all to see while class was in session.

The 11-year-old male involved in this incident is now facing charges of displaying harmful material to a minor, a Class A misdemeanor.

But this isn't the only incident.

On two other occasions a student was seen waving what appeared to be a hand gun while class was in session.

Mercedes ISD sent us a statement about these incidents.

Watch the video for the full story.
