My dad raised his hand to me... can he get in trouble for this?

My dad got really mad at me today because he found out that I was failing all my classes and because I have a boyfriend (of 2 years) that he never knew about. He is a single father, and way over protective. I swear, he ALMOST hit me (he raised his hand, but I looked at him and said "you wouldn't dare").After I said that, he stopped. Should I tell someone about this? he has never been so mad at me before, but it really scared me. Should/can I do something?
