QUEENS, N.Y. -- A 222-pound gym teacher says he was beaten up by a six-year-old boy in the hallway of the school.

John Webster, a former college football player says the boy fractured his ankle, injured his knee and forced him to need therapy for stress.

According to Webster's attorney, the student has a history of violent behavior, and Webster says he's just thankful he was able to restrain himself.

"It's very humiliating," Webster said. "It happened. I wasn't able to defend myself, if I did I probably would've lost both my teaching certifications, probably in jail or things could've happened, so thinking to my future, I decided to act in the manner in which I did, refraining from hurting the student."

The child is still attending school, but Webster says his injuries are so severe that he hasn't been able to return to his teaching job, and is considering filing a lawsuit.

The child's parents say their son is now on medication and getting help.
