A Maryland dad likely won’t see any charges after he struck a local teacher with a baseball bat.
Police say the dad saw a series of texts on Thursday between the 42-year-old teacher and his daughter, a 15-year-old student. The girl’s mother deemed them “inappropriate for a teacher and a student” to be sharing, News Net 5 reports. Investigators didn’t agree and never charged the teacher with a crime, but the situation took a downturn later that day when the unidentified teacher showed up at the girl’s house.
He wanted to speak to the girl’s father, but was told to leave, CBS local reports. When he refused, the dad reportedly whacked him with a baseball bat. The teacher sustained minor injuries.
Police arrived at the Nottingham home at about 9:45 p.m., but the teacher didn’t press charges.
The Crimes Against Children Unit continues to investigate, according to The Baltimore Sun. The department said it won’t release the names of the girl and her parents.
