NYC teacher sues city, claims he was beaten up by first-grader
NEW YORK — A Queens gym teacher and former college football player is suing New York City, claiming he was injured by a first-grader.
The New York Post reported that 220-pound John Webster, 27, is accusing 4-foot-2 Rodrigo Carpio, 6, of injuring his knee and forcing him to attend a shrink for stress.
“It’s sort of like an angel-devil sort of thing,” Webster said. “(Rodrigo) looks like an angel, but then, all of a sudden, that halo turns into horns. It’s been a nightmare. It’s embarrassing. It’s humiliating.”
Webster recently filed a notice of his intent to sue the city and said he must wear braces on his knee and right ankle.
Jorge Carpio, the child’s 44-year-old father, said the lawsuit is absurd.
“How could my little boy do so much damage? My poor son,” he said.
