Gym Teacher / Former College Football Player Sues School After Getting Mopped By A 50-Pound 1st Grader!
A hulking Queens gym teacher and former college football player claims a pupil fractured his ankle, injured his knee and forced him to go to a shrink for stress an even though the kid was only 50 pounds and in first grade. Burly, 220-pound PS 330 teacher John Webster, 27, said a 4-foot-2 Rodrigo Carpio, 6, also kicked and pinched the Elmhurst school's principal, a security officer and another teacher during a rampage in April. â€œItâ€™s sort of like an angel-devil sort of thing,â€ said the 5-foot-10 Webster, who recently filed a notice of his intent to sue the city and says he must now wear braces on his right ankle and knee. Rodrigo looks like an angel, but then, all of a sudden, that halo turns into horns. Its been a nightmare. Its embarrassing. Its humiliating.â€ But Rodrigo's dad, Jorge Carpio, 44, scoffed: â€œThe lawsuit is totally absurd. How could my little boy do so much damage? My poor son. The boys mom added, â€œThis is a terrible thing to say [about] a child To every mother, their child is an angel, said Josefa Marcia da Silva, 33, of her son, now 4-foot-3 and 64 pounds. â€œI know that he has problems, but he doesnat deserve to be called such names
