Teacher Allegedly Beat Down A Kid's Mother Over Her Choice Of Shorts

A Florida teacher is accused of beating a parent at a childs' baseball practice over what she was wearing.

Jacksonville, FL - A Florida teacher was arrested after fighting with another woman at their children’s youth baseball practice over the wearing of “short shorts.”

Terry Coursey is a teacher at Clay High School who was arrested Feb. 23 and was suspended from her teaching job after the arrest.

Coursey, 37, pleaded not guilty to first-degree misdemeanor charge of simple battery, according to WJXT-TV.

The incident occurred at about 7 p.m. at a youth baseball practice held at Orange Park Athletic Association baseball fields.

According to the police, another mother was watching the practice when Coursey criticized her for wearing “short shorts.”

The victim said Coursey repeatedly punched her in the face and tackled her.

The victim had visible bruises on her forearms, a cut on her right wrist and abrasions on her shoulder, elbow and chest, according to the deputy’s report.

Attempts to reach Coursey to her her side of the story have not been successful.

Internet commenters expressed confusion about why anybody would care about short shorts in the Florida heat.

“Exactly how short?” asked Jim Ermin on the WJXT Facebook page. “When is the next game so I can form my own opinion?”

“Everyone fussing about a woman wearing short-shorts around kids at a baseball game, yet the same woman wearing even less (bikini) at the beach around kids is okay. What is the matter with you people,” posted Gordon MacWilliam on the WJXT homepage.

i cannot imagine that any woman who have the right to tell another woman what to wear and so if the woman wore short shorts--she never asked the teacher for permission on what she should wear so one thing i would say to the teacher----WHAT DOES IT MATTER TO YOU??? IMAGINE!!! out in florida where the weather can get very hot, the woman decided to wear something that would be more comfortable for herself--she never asked permission I MEAN FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, IT WAS OUTSIDE--HOT WEATHER, WHAT WAS THE WOMAN SUPPOSED TO WEAR--A WINTER COAT THAT COVERED HERSELF FROM NECK TO THE FEET???? GIVE ME A BREAK????????? the teacher enjoyed spending time in jail, did she????? why didnt the teacher do one thing--KEEP HER NOSE, OUT OF IT AND SHE WOULD NOT SPEND TIME IN JAIL---THE TEACHER WAS definately wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!
