Bryant High School teacher accused of sexual misconduct with a student

The Bryant Police Department confirms an on-going investigation of a now former Bryant teacher, Heather Danielle (Hall) Hare. Hare (age 32) has been accused of sexual contact with a student. 

Hare was featured on ABC Good Morning America in May 2020 when a course she taught was discontinued during the pandemic.

At this point no details of the alleged illegal conduct have been released.

Earlier today the school district posted this on a Bryant Schools Facebook page.

According to on-line school board records, Hare submitted her resignation effective April 1, 2023.



Hare is married and is a resident of Conway, AR.

KATV featured the Hare family in another story on October 31, 2022.

Stay tuned for updates.

KTHV featured Hare's daughter in several newscasts.


***UPDATE 04/06/23***

Bryant PD provided us with their initial report dated March 31, 2023.

***UPDATE 04/07/23***

Sources report that the Bryant High School football player involved in an "entanglement" with his married teacher, Heather Hare, at Bryant High School is Miguel Graham. This is the pair in a recent photo.

Sources also report that the student and teacher were involved in a school related organization that made overnight trips.

If any of those trips were out of state and she had sex with him, she might be charged under the Mann Act

To be charged with a federal offense under the Mann Act, you must have been involved in the transportation of an individual for the purposes of prostitution or any sexual activity that may be charged as a crime (which would include kidnapping, coercion, child pornography, child prostitution, or the transportation of a minor). Additionally, using the mail or telephone (or electronic communications) to facilitate such an act could be charged as a Mann Act violation as well.

Our source told us that coaches told Graham's mom that if UCA got wind of it they would yank both her kids scholarships.

We contacted UCA to inquire on the status of his scholarship and asked specifically if it have been revoked or withdrawn. We said if it had been revoked we wanted records regarding that under the AFOIA. 

A UCA spokesperson said the University was unaware of this situation and would have to get back with information about his scholarship offer and status.

***UPDATE 4/7/23 - 4:42PM*** 

The Bryant school district responded to our FOI request and provided a copy of Hare's personnel file.

***UPDATE 04/14/23***

According to a post on Facebook by Bryant PD, Hare has been charged with Sexual Assault in the First Degree, a felony charge. Hare turned herself in this morning.

***UPDATE - 04/14/23 - 2:00PM***

The Saline County Sheriff's Department inmate roster shows that Hare was release at 1:26 pm this afternoon after posting a $15,000.00 bond.


***UPDATE - 04/13/23- 4:00PM***

UCA finally provided a response to our verbal FOI request of April 7th after some gentle prodding.

In their response, they provided records regarding the scholarship and stated they have not rescinded it. 



***UPDATE - 04/17/23 11:00AM***

The Saline County Sheriff's Department sent us the booking records.


***UPDATE 08/02/23***

Hare was taken into custody by US Marshall's for the FBI and placed at the Pulaski County Jail today. Looks like she will be facing federal charges for violations of the Mann Act.

Three LRPD cops "relieved of duty" over incident at Club Trois

Sources at LRPD have confirmed a tip we received that three LRPD cops, Brad Stewart, Lee Pitts and Justin Sims have been "relieved of duty" in connection with an incident at Club Trois. The story we were told is that Stewart was working off-duty at Club Trois and dealt with an inebriated female club patron by soaking her with pepper spray.  LRPD General Order  ("G.O.") 303 requires that a cop that uses physical force, non-lethal control and compliance devices, on or off-duty, follow certain procedures. Use of pepper spray is a Level 4 event. Here are the specific procedures. LRPD sources tell us that they are trained to call MEMS after they use pepper spray or a taser on an individual. They are to file an incident report and they file an officer's report or letter form (5600-2) with their immediate supervisor for each use of force incident. Here's an example of an officer letter form.   Not a single procedure was followed in this incident. And to make matter

Pulaski County Department headed by State Senator Fred Love is in trouble.

By Russ Racop On July 31st we broke the story that there was an internal investigation afoot at the Pulaski County office of Community Services.   A recipient of Section 8 HVC vouchers contacted us on that same day for assistance and we began our investigation.   Her landlord contacted her and told her she had three days to get out of her apartment because she had fraudulently obtained assistance.    The landlord had been contacted by Love's staff before she had. She didn't understand what was going on because she just moved into the apartment and had been vetted and approved for assistance by Love's department. It's not the first time someone has reached out to us about Fred Love and that county department.  Love also serves in the state legislature as a Senator. We have received allegations and some records about sexual and workplace harassment, malfeasance and misuse of county resources involving Love. We immediately called the number listed on that rent payment noti
