Former High School Teacher, Coach Wanted After Missing Court Date
February 21, 2013
FORT WORTH (WBAP 24/7 News) - A warrant has been issued for the arrest of former Arlington Heights High School teacher and coach Chad Hawkins.
Hawkins reportedly missed a court appearance on Feb. 8. The 34-year-old Euless resident is facing a charge of indecency with a child. Authorities say Hawkins had a inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old student and was found making out with the girl in the parking lot of a health club.
He resigned from his job last month and was arrested. He's been out of jail on $15,000 bond since January.
Hawkins, a former minor league pitcher, was drafted by the Texas Rangers in 2000.
