It just hasn't been a good week for New York City teachers.

Just days after two separate sex scandals came to light at Brooklyn's James Madison High School, it is reported that the man who was caught on camera punching "Jersey Shore" star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi in the face is none other than Queens teacher Brad Ferro.

The North Queens Community High School gym teacher was arrested in August for punching Polizzi at the Beachcomber Bar & Grill in Seaside Heights after he stole alcohol from the reality star and her friends.

Ferro has since been transferred to one of New York City's infamous "rubber rooms" where he'll await the results of an investigation.

This is just the latest scandal for the MTV reality show which has seen protests from Italian-American groups who believe the show propagates negative stereotypes.
