A 17-year-old high school student faces felony charges for attacking a Beechnut Academy teacher with a textbook.

Investigators say Edward Rubio threw a hardback Biology book at his math teacher's head while the teacher was arguing with another student. Rubio faces charges of injury to an elderly individual.

Rubio said he didn't mean to hit the teacher, but witnesses say he had made a previous threat.
