Hoggard coach fired after arrest for fight at school
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Hoggard High School teacher assistant and assistant football coach has been fired days after being arrested for allegedly assaulting several students at school. A New Hanover County Schools spokeswoman said Brown’s termination was effective yesterday.
The school district said Thursday after Brown was arrested it would wait for the results of an investigation before moving forward. Brown had been suspended with pay since the fight at Hoggard March 8.
According to the arrest warrants, Brown hit multiple students in the head with a closed fist, grabbed the throat of another alleged victim and even took a yard-long wooden stick and threatened the students with it.
