A man who was filmed hurling racial slurs at a Georgia high school teacher has been arrested and accused of harassment.
Eric DeKeyzer, 49, was charged with disorderly conduct for the April 6 altercation near Johns Creek, Georgia.
Local authorities say DeKeyzer was tailing Terrence Stover, a South Gwinnet High School teacher and football coach.
‘Then he passed me on the driver’s side and flipped me off,’ the educator shared on his Facebook, last Wednesday. ‘He threw an object out his window in my direction and screamed obscenities at me.’

Stover – who teaches U.S. history – pulled into a shopping center hoping to prevent any further issues. The man allegedly followed him into the parking lot.
The teacher then began recording the altercation.
‘You called me a n****r for no reason,’ he said.
DeKeyzer replied: ‘I knew that it would get a f*****g rise out of you.’

Stover shares that he is aware how his large stature of being over six feet tall and over 350lbs while black makes him a target if police were to become involved.
‘Control yourself, think about what could happen,’ he can be heard stating.
DeKeyzer continues his rant adding that ‘It’s not against the law to call someone that.’
‘Then keep calling me one big dog,’ Stover said.
‘F**k you n****r,’ the man retorts
Stover finally added: ‘Thank you but you know what I have more sense than to insult you like that.’
Numerous witnesses saw the altercation and called the police.
DeKeyzer was arrested and found to have a pocket knife on him.
‘I knew that it would get a f*****g rise out of you,’ DeKeyzer asserts when Stover ask why the man called him a ‘n****r’
