A New York teenager was arrested Monday after authorities say he punched his high school principal, according to local reports.

Luis Penzo, 18, a student at Manhattan Early College for Advertising, was arrested on assault charges Tuesday, CBS2 reports.

According to police, Principal Matthew Tossman asked Penzo to turn down the volume on his headphones, but Penzo refused so Tossman tried to take the headphones from him.

Penzo responded by repeatedly punching Tossman, CBS2 reported.

Tossman was treated for swelling at a local hospital and later released, NY1 reported.

Penzo’s attorney asked the judge to be lenient with Penzo, whose mother recently passed away.

He is currently being held on $5000 bail.
