Timothy Arrington, a teacher at
Arrington handcuffed two male students and had them secured in a “quarantine room” overnight. This happened on two separate occasions. One of the boys was put into a choke hold until he was unconscious. On the other occasion, a student was found the next day with bloody wrists after Arrington put him in the handcuffs. Arrington admitted to both of these incidents being true.
Another criminal complaint said that Arrington had allegedly locked another student in the “quarantine room” and told him to remove his clothing with the exception of his undergarments. Arrington admitted to a WVDHHR employee that this action was a “personal decision to make life less crazy” for the student and would return the clothing when "he changed his story."
Clark was reportedly aware of these incidents and practices, and told WVDHHR employees that “she had a talk” with Arrington and failed to exercise action to care and assure student safety at the school.
Clark and Arrington are both facing jail time. The Harrison County Sheriff's Department is continuing the investigation. More charges may be pending.
