California student broke bone while arm wrestling teacher, suit says

An Orange County high school student has filed a lawsuit accusing his history teacher of breaking the boy's arm after challenging him to an arm-wrestling contest in class.

The Orange County Register reports the suit filed this week claims Zachary Larkin, a teacher at Villa Park High School, used both hands and his full body weight during the June 2013 contest.

The mother of Austin Lazarus, a 17-year-old junior at the time, says the teacher used "poor judgment."

She says her son's arm has healed but is slightly crooked. Lazarus tells the newspaper that he felt humiliated after the incident.

The suit filed contends Larkin's actions demonstrate a pattern of negligence by the district and the school.

Larkin and Villa Park High School Principal Ed Howard declined to comment.
