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 teacherand 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. 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. The department said it won't release the names of the girl and her parents.
Would you do the same in the father's position? Keep in mind that the detail's of the text messages have not been disclosed, the teacher came to girls house, and he didn't press charges after the father wacked him in the head with the bat.
