Trying to pick a fight with someone smaller than you can either make you look like a jerk or get you knocked on your behind. A man from the United Kingdom will certainly make sure he knows who he’s fighting next time after an what should’ve been an easy fight went south.
Stuart Briggs, a 35-year-old man, confessed to targeting secondary student Alex Williams in 2021 during the teen’s lunch hour in Guisborough, North Yorkshire. The adult first approached the teen and his friend who had been sitting on a bench.
Unsure of Briggs’ next move, the then 16-year-old and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu junior world champion was able to flip the man and pin him to the ground. Being the oaf that he is, the adult attempted to goad Williams into fighting some more.
“As he got closer to me, I saw an opportunity to defend myself and fight back, so I took it,” Williams said.
He added: “When the fight or flight kicks in, you’ve got to choose one or the other and I chose to fight back and I was focused.”
Another man did eventually break up the fight but somewhere during the altercation, Briggs was able to bite a chunk out of the boy’s ear. The teen didn’t even realize a chunk of his ear was missing until he noticed the “blood everywhere.” Briggs also threatened he was going to stab Williams and smash his head in if he got the chance.
Police were called to the scene and Briggs was arrested. He recently pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent and was granted unconditional bail until October 11, 2022.
