How did Buddy Revell NOT get suspended.

I know it's just a movie but come on let's be real. Buddy Revell knock out Craig Mattey in the Library, knocks every book down. Knock's out Mr. O'Rourke, Knock's out school security guard known as "the Duker. Than he come's to school the next day like nothing happen. How does Buddy Revell not get suspended from school.


I agree! If this had happened in real life, Buddy would have most likely been suspended for a very long time (if not expelled) after the injury he inflicted on Craig Mattey in the library.

What I also find surprising is that the security guard and the Dean of Discipline do not seem to know Jerry (even though he is a senior and writes for the school newspaper) and treat him as a potential criminal.
