PITTSBURGH (AP) - Police say a western Pennsylvania teen who recorded his principal making threatening comments toward him has a history of secretly recording school officials.

Chief Allen Park tells The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/2gsvBKs ) that Churchill police charged the 14-year-old Woodland Hills High School student with violating Pennsylvania’s wiretap law earlier this year.

Park says the boy recorded a September meeting called to settle a dispute with another student without permission and then posted the audio on Facebook.

The teen now finds himself at the center of the controversy surrounding Principal Kevin Murray, who was placed on leave Wednesday after the boy produced a recording where Murray can be heard saying he would punch him in the face.

Allegheny County prosecutors say they have been in contact with Churchill police regarding the boy.
