(Scroll down for video) A teacher who was carrying on an inappropriate relationship with a young student, was beaten by her father.
The father of Perry Hall, Maryland, was angry with the teacher after seeing a string of text messages between the 42-year-old male teacher and his daughter.
The family of the 15-year-old girl said that the texts seemed inappropriate for a teacher-student relationship. However, things took a turn for the worse when the teacher showed up at the family’s house to speak with the teen.
“The girl’s father told the teacher to leave, but the teacher refused,” police said in a press release. “The father of the girl then hit the teacher with a baseball bat,” the police report also stated.
Authorities were called and after reviewing the evidence they did not consider the texts between the teacher and the student to be a sexual relationship. He was not charged with a crime.
The teacher who suffered minor injuries, did not want to press charges against the father of his student for the beating.
