7th Grade Student Knocked Out By Teacher For Joke About His Favorite Team

Reginald WellsReginald Wells, a 12-year-old student at Willie Ray Smith Middle School in Beaumont, Texas was allegedly knocked unconscious by his assistant math teacher last Friday after making a joke about his favorite football team, reports CBS News.

Wells was standing in the hallway joking with the teacher, when the encounter suddenly took a violent turn.

“All of a sudden he just hit me, in my shoulder,” Wells said in an interview with 12News. “… and I looked at him like, ‘What the heck?’”

The 4 feet 11 inches tall, 80 pound 7th-grader says that he responded by pushing the teacher’s shoulder. And, from there, the unthinkable happened.

The teacher was fired immediately and escorted off the premises, but was not arrested. To add insult to injury, he allegedly refused to apologize for his actions.

“He said ‘I can’t apologize for what I did, I was just having a bad day and I just snapped,’” said Wells.

“For you to just let a teacher do that to him and just walk off, he’s fired and walks off, I can’t accept that.”
