Seventh-Grader Slapdown

Jared John Gallagher, assistant football coach at Corriher-Lipe Middle School in Landis, N.C., was apparently having a bad day. When deputies arrived in response to a disturbance call, the head coach, Douglas Pruitt, told them Gallagher had attempted to strangle a seventh-grade student, and had assaulted a parent. When Deputy William Lowery approached, Gallagher demanded the deputy take off his sunglasses, then clenched his fists. Gallagher allegedly continued threatening the officer, and Lowery eventually tagged him with a Taser. But Gallagher pulled the prongs from his skin. Another officer fired his Taser too; it took two more shocks to get Gallagher to surrender. He was charged with child abuse, possession of a weapon on educational grounds (a handgun in his car), and resisting arrest, all misdemeanors.

A THOUGHT: Apparently this was part of his usual coaching lesson to the kids: “Never give up.”

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
