Altering Behaviour

I got carpeted by the teacher today as my lovely 5 year old 'punched someone in the mouth'. Nobody saw him do it, neither child said much about it, the other child was bigger and older than him but was hurt. He says he was being held on to and was trying to get away, the teacher clearly didn't believe him - what should I do as a mother?

My instinct was that it couldn't be as bad as they said, he is not vindictive nor does he go looking for trouble as a rule, and I don't like kids being punished twice for misdemeanours, but he can't go around causing trouble as he'll get a bad name. Hmmmm - dilemma for me......

advice welcome!
