ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - An elementary school teacher in Rock Hill has been accused of hurting a female student, leaving a bruise on her arm. 

Thirty-five-year-old Daniel Johns of Rosewood Elementary School has been placed on administrative leave with pay after he was charged with third-degree assault and battery. 

Officials say Johns was on hall duty early Wednesday when a 9-year-old girl became unruly. School spokeswoman Elaine Baker says Johns talked with the girl and then took her into a classroom and spoke with her again before returning her to the hall. 

The girl told school officials about the incident later that day and officials called police. 

The girl did not require medical attention. 

Johns told WSOC-TV he hopes the matter can be resolved quickly. He's been at the school for 10 years.
