DETROIT (AP) -- A 34-year-old Detroit man has been charged with aggravated assault in connection with a reported attack on the principal of his child's school.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says Keron Wilson is expected to be arraigned on the misdemeanor Thursday in 36th District Court.

The charge is punishable by up to one year in jail.

The prosecutor's office says 40-year-old Philip Van Hooks reported being bitten on the forearm and punched after telling Wilson on Monday why the child was not allowed on a school field trip. Van Hooks is principal at Cooke Elementary in northwest Detroit.
