Sub teacher-1 Punk student-0

This substitute teacher didn't like having a jelly bean thrown at him so he did what any normal person would do. He threw a chair at the student:

Seventh grader, Tyrone Woods Jr. said a substitute teacher accused him of throwing jellybeans at him. As he denied it, he said the teacher picked up a chair.

"He said, I think you threw it so I backed away from him. So that’s when he had the chair in his hands, he grabbed it with two hands and threw it towards my way and I tried jumping over the chair and it hit the inside of my ankle," said Woods Jr.

Woods Jr. left the classroom, limped down the hall and called his parents.

The little boy ended up with a fractured ankle.

"He needs to be held accountable. There’s no question about it. He needs to be held to the same standards that you or I would be held at if we threw a chair at a student or at anybody,” said Woods Sr.

The school said they have removed the teacher from the school and are investigating the incident.

Before the parents went to the doctor's office, they went straight to a lawyer's office. Tyrone has now made the transition from trouble making punk to helpless victim. The good news is Bobby Knight has now asked the sub to be on his coaching staff:
