How Could I Pass This Up....

Woodburn teacher reprimanded in thigh-biting incident

State regulators have reprimanded a Woodburn teacher for biting a high school wrestler on the inside of the thigh, leaving teeth marks.

Assistant wrestling coach Peter Porath was defending himself against a "wedgie" attack, according to the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission.

During the Dec. 12, 2005 incident at a wrestling practice, "At least six wrestlers, weighing between 180 and 215 pounds each, came up to Mr. Porath from behind in an attempt to give him a 'wedgie'. In the process of getting the boys off of him, Mr. Porath bit the inside of a wrestler's leg leaving distinct teeth marks," the commission's order states.
