H.S. Coach Reprimanded For Licking Players' Bleeding Wounds

BEND, Ore. -- An Oregon high school teacher has gotten a tongue-lashing for his wound-licking.

Oregon's teacher standards board has voted to publicly reprimand the science teacher and football coach, who was accused of licking the bleeding wounds of several students.

The board also voted to place Scott Reed on two years' probation.

Reed agreed with the "stipulated facts" of the case: that he licked blood from wounds on a runner's knee, a football player's arm, and another student's hand.

It's not clear why he licked the wounds. But several students said it seemed like Reed was "just joking around."

The county sheriff investigated the case last year, and no charges were filed. The sheriff called the behavior "bizarre" but not criminal.

Reed resigned this spring as a track coach, but remains the school's football coach and dean of students.

He will be attending a class on the risks of blood-borne pathogens.

I think he should be attending more than just a class on blood-borne pathogens. This guy needs to take a serious look at some counseling.

Took the words right out of my mouth, weird stuff! Still I’d sleep with a wooden stake under the bed, garlic on the doors and windows and a crucifix around my neck! Better safe than sorry!

David, sparky 'b': if this doofus is a vampire (in training), he must have missed that day they were discussing how you go about getting the blood.

Monicar: yep one sick little puppy.
