Apparently the other shoe, or perhaps sandal, has dropped for "Jersey Shore" puncher Brad Ferro.

The Queens high school gym teacher who was caught on camera hitting diminutive cast member Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has been terminated.

According to TMZ,

NY City Department of Education says they are drafting Brad Ferro's termination letter right now -- and once he gets it, he'll have 30 days to pack up his stuff and split from North Queens Community High School.

Ferro had been reassigned to one of New York's infamous rubber rooms while the case was pending.

Snooki, on the other hand, has bounced back in a big way.

Aside from getting paid thousands of dollars in appearance fees, the "Princess of Poughkeepsie" guest-starred as a weather girl on WPIX last week.
