12-year-old Reginald Wells was knocked out cold after making fun of a teacher’s favorite NFL team.
CBS Houston reports the student says he was innocently joking with an assistant math teacher in the hallway of the Willie Ray Smith Middle School but after making a wise crack about the Houston Texans, the teacher punched Wells.
The victim explained to Houston’s 12News, “All of a sudden he just hit me, in my shoulder and I looked at him like, ‘What the heck?’”
Moments later the teacher landed another shot in his face which knocked the 4 foot 11 student out cold. According to school’s principal, Wells “was punched, in the shoulder, and then hit two times and uppercut, and then slid across the floor.”
The teacher was fired on the spot and escorted from the school before apologizing to Wells for the incident.
