Classical radio personality, Lee Wenger, was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly battering a minor at Peoria High School.

Peoria Police confirmed that 57 year old Wenger was issued a notice to appear on a battery charge after the incident.

According to the Peoria Journal Star, Wenger was at the school where his wife, Denise Adams, is the music director.

Apparently Adams was involved in an argument with a student during a play rehearsal.

The paper also reports that Wenger allegedly shoved the female student into a row of lockers while screaming not to disrespect his wife.

The girl later told police she thought he was going to hit her because he shoved his fist in her face.
