Prior to the show's start, Artie was in a really bad car accident when he was 8 years old. While his mother who was driving the car was fine, Artie was left paralyzed from the waist down (although he still is capable of using his penis as he tells Tina). Like some of the kids in Glee, Artie is a target of bullying, such as in the Pilot where the football team stuffs him in a port-a-potty with the intent of flipping it over, which could severely hurt him, thankfully Finn Hudson comes to his help. In the episode "Wheels", when the group makes plans for sectionals, Will Schuester discovers that the school won't give him a bus capable for Artie's wheelchair. When he informs the group that they need to raise money, the other students are unconcerned saying that Artie can just ride with his dad, which visbly hurts Artie's feelings. Angry at their behavior, Will forces the kids to raise the money with a bake sale, and forces the other to ride in wheelchairs for a week, to see how difficult it is for Artie to spend his whole life in a wheelchair. He goes on a date with Tina, but feels betrayed when she confesses she has been faking he own disability, a speech impediment, claiming that the connection he thought they have is a lie, and breaks off the relationship, much to Tina's disappointment. However, after Artie apologizes for his misogynistic remarks towards Tina in the episode "The Power of Madonna", the two appear to be reunited as a couple.
