SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A Los Angeles police officer accused of beating a teenage relative over poor grades and behavior has been charged with child abuse and causing corporal injury.

The Orange County District Attorney's office says 39-year-old Daniel Hun Chun was charged with the two felony counts Friday.

Prosecutors say Chun was off-duty on March 13 when he allegedly confronted the boy about his poor grades and other behavior issues. Chun is accused of striking him with a variety of household items on the shoulders, back and butt. A school counselor noticed welts and bruises on the teen and reported it to police.

Chun is out on $100,000 bail. His scheduled arraignment on Friday was continued to May 6.

He faces up to six years in prison if convicted.
