Caught You Red-Handed!

During class recently, Coach Brown noticed a student attempting to cheat on a reading quiz and taught him a valuable lesson in front of his classroom peers.

I started through the grading process and immediately it was evident that he was going to copy answers during the grading time from the other student's paper to his own. I watched him throughout the process as he picked and chose the answers carefully, not writing everything down as to give it away. I acted totally ignorant to the situation and finished going through the answers, slowly walking over to his position in the room. After finishing the answers and right before calling for all papers to be passed forward, I stopped in front of the student's desk.
