(Scroll down for video) A teacher filed a lawsuit against her former employer after she was fired from her job because she called the police to report an assault, according to court documents in Colorado.

Carrie Giesler of Loveland, said that she was hired by the Thompson School District to teach a 13-year-old boy with autism.

The boy began to physically attack Giesler, and the abuse continued for six months.

The boy allegedly slapped his teacher in the face with an open hand, punched her in the ribs, kicked her in the back and spit in her face.

The boy also threatened to kill her.

The teacher complained to the principal, but instead of punishing the student, Giesler was prohibited from documenting the incidents or calling the police.

After the boy broke Giesler’s finger, she called the police who arrested the boy on a charge of assault. After the incident with the police, Giesler was fired.
