WLLR's Is It The News...Or Not?

Which is real?

The Headlines:

  • Woman Sleeps Six Days At A Time (FAKE)
  • Teacher Arrested For Running "Fight Club" In Classroom (REAL)

A substitute teacher in Montville, Connecticut was running a “fight club” in his math class starting in September. According to police, Ryan Avery Fish actually encouraged students to fight one another in the classroom to "get their energy out." They’ve been investigating the “fight club” since December. Officials say the fights happened under Fish’s supervision and involved four boys ages 14 to 16. “The truth is I’m an idiot and wanted to befriend them,” Fish allegedly told investigators. “I’m immature.” The fights typically included students open-handed smacking one another repeatedly, but some were taken too far. Faculty apparently discovered the "club" in October - Fish was fired soon after. The extent of the students’ injuries are unknown, but one student reportedly began vomiting during one of the fights while another has been taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation after showing symptoms of being traumatized. Fish has since been charged with four counts of second-degree reckless endangerment, two counts of risk of injury to a minor and one count of breach of peace. And get this... In the videos, Fish can be seen moving objects out of the way so the fights could continue and even after one student vomited, he egged on the fight by calling for “round two.”
