outbursts of anger from a normally well behaved 8 year old boy.

I am completely dumbfounded by how he has been acting. He is angry but shuts down when i try to talk to him about it. He grabbed two girls by the arm at school because he says 'they made me mad, they were smiling at me and i didn't like it!' Then today we get a call from the principal saying that he got mad in class and pushed his desk over. I cannot even picture him doing this, he has always been such a mellow child. He hugs everyone and his entire class is his 'best friend'. I don't know if I should punish him at home after the punishment he received at school or if that'd just make him more angry, i don't know how to approach this where he will open up to me and I don't know how to make it stop...please help me ladies, i am desperate to have my mellow yellow back.
