GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A Green Bay high school student is facing a felony charge after he allegedly punched a teacher after the teacher told him he would date him.

Press-Gazette Media reports prosecutors filed a felony battery and misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges against 17-year-old Ridwaan Mohamud on Tuesday.

According to a criminal complaint, the male Southwest High School teacher counseled Mohamud on December 18th about being bullied and told the boy he'd be willing to date him.

The teacher said he intended the remark as joke and as a way to tell the boy he wasn't ugly. But the complaint says Mohamud walked into the teacher's first class Monday, called out his name and punched him.
