This is from Harry Reid's upcoming biography.  Apparently, he was a tough kid (excerpt from the Las Vegas Review):

"One day I'd had enough ... Right there in the classroom, I beat the crap out of the kid, in front of all the other students and his own mother. I did such a good job beating him up that I broke my hand on his hard head ... It hurt, but I was still pretty happy."

When he informed his father, Reid said he "wasn't bothered at all that I had started the fight ... He simply said, 'Next time, keep your fist closed.' That was it. No doctor, no ice ... I got into a lot of fights after that, and I always kept my fist closed."

He also apparently also took a swing at his future father-in-law.
