PHOENIX (AP)- Arizona state Sen. Don Shooter says his lawyer is negotiating with the city prosecutor in Yuma to resolve a case where he confronted his grandson's teacher in a classroom.

Yuma police have asked the prosecutor to file four misdemeanor charges against the Republican for a March 22 incident at the grandson's charter high school. They want Shooter charged with assault, interference or disruption of an educational institution, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

The senator never touched the teacher or any students. Police say the assault charge was requested because the teacher was fearful.

Shooter said Tuesday his lawyer is trying to resolve the case. Prosecutor Jay Cairns declined to confirm plea negotiations and said the case is still under review.

Shooter says the teacher was bullying his grandson.
