A Princeville art teacher faces battery charges after several students alleged he touched them and made them uncomfortable.

Peoria County Sheriff Chris Watkins said 46-year-old Anthony Johnson was arrested Friday on three counts of battery following an investigation.

Watkins said any other students who had uncomfortable encounters with Johnson in the Princeville school district should contact the school and the Peoria County Sheriff's Office.
