Police: Father hits teacher with bat after texting with daughter

Baltimore, MD (WBTV/WMAR) -

The father of a Maryland high school student struck a teacher with a baseball bat after police were alerted to "inappropriate" texts between the 42-year-old male teacher and the 15-year-old female student.

The student's mother reported the texts to police, who then read over the texts that they said "described an emotional relationship that seemed inappropriate for a teacher and student," according WMAR in Maryland.

It was determined, however, that no crime had been committed and the case was referred to the Crimes Against Children Unit for further investigation, police told WMAR.

On Thursday morning, the teacher went to the girl's home, without permission, to speak with her father. "The girl's father told the teacher to leave, but the teacher refused," according to a police news release. "The girl's father then struck the teacher with a baseball bat."

The teacher, who police told WMAR suffered minor injuries, did not want to press charges.

Police are not releasing the names of the girl, her parents or the teacher.
