TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The principal of a Tucson high school is accused of assaulting a teenage boy who's dating his stepdaughter.

Tucson police say Sahuaro High School Principal Christopher Bonn was cited and released Tuesday afternoon.

Police say the 40-year-old Bonn reportedly discovered his stepdaughter sneaked out of the house sometime late Sunday or early Monday and waited for her to return home.

Bonn allegedly saw the pair park near his home around 4 a.m. Monday and walked up to the vehicle.

Bonn says he thought he saw the boy reaching for something in the center console and believed it could be a gun, so he punched him to prevent that possibility.

Tucson Unified School District officials say Bonn has been "assigned to home" while they review the incident to determine appropriate action.

Statement by TUSD

Tucson Unified School District has learned that Sahuaro High School Principal Chris Bonn was charged with a misdemeanor crime involving an altercation with a minor. The protection of our students is a priority for TUSD and any behavior that threatens that protection is completely inappropriate and unacceptable.  Dr. Bonn has been assigned to home pending a review of the facts of the situation. While the altercation was an off-duty incident that occurred outside of any TUSD property, the district is taking this measure to ensure our students are safe at school. Once the incident is reviewed by district leadership, appropriate action will be taken.
