A 16-year-old student who killed a classmate with a single punch during a school scrap has been cleared of criminal charges after surveillance footage showed the other teen picked the fight.
Gregary Teer used justified force to defend himself when he punched 17-year-old Dakota Escritt at Abraham Lincoln High School in Council Bluffs, Nebraska on September 25, Pottawattamie County Attorney Matt Wilber concluded.
Surveillance footage of the incident shows Escritt repeatedly pushing Teer in the school hallways after the boys reportedly exchanged words on social media the night before.
Teer can be seen walking away from Escritt each time until he finally has enough and shoves back. Both boys raise their fists, but Teer hits first and the other boy falls to the ground.
Escritt smacks his head on the tile floor and lifts up one arm to the ceiling before falling back down.
He was taken unconscious to a hospital, where he died three days later. An autopsy showed that his cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head, the Omaha World-Herald reported.
