BISD police pursuing an "injury to a child" charge against former teacher

Posted: Updated:

Beaumont Independent School District sources have confirmed that 24-year-old Michael Fisher is the teacher who is accused of punching a 12-year-old student in the face.

The reported attack took place on Friday, November 8 at Willie Ray Smith Middle School.

Seventh grader Reginald Wells claims Fisher, who was an assistant math teacher, hit him, busting his lip, and knocking him out.

Reginald's mother, Adrianne Wells, said a teacher witnessed the attack and Fisher was escorted off campus and fired.  But Mrs. Wells says she believes Fisher should have been arrested, so she reported the incident to BISD police.

Sources tell 12News police interviewed Fisher Thursday, and that he's cooperating and feels remorseful and sad.

BISD police are pursuing a charge of injury to a child against Fisher, and will file the case with the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office.

Police expect to file the case with the DA's office sometime next week, they're still waiting on some of Reginald's medical records.
