A 14-year-old student is facing disciplinary action after he allegedly bit a teacher on the hand when he didn't get his cell phone back fast enough at the end of class, authorities said.

Marge Feinberg, a Department of Education spokeswoman, said the Lower Manhattan Arts Academy teacher was returning phones at the end of the period when the 14-year-old student allegedly said he was not going to wait and demanded his cell. 

When he didn't get it immediately, he allegedly bit the teacher's hand.

Feinberg said the teacher's hand was red and swollen but the skin did not break.

The student was taken to the local precinct and his parents were notified.

The school is located on the Seward Park Campus on Grand Street.
