Hal Qualls, an assistant football coach at Rogers Heritage High School, is set to appear in Rogers District Court on Dec. 10 at 9 a.m. following a misdemeanor DWI arrest this month, records show.

Qualls, whose Twitter page lists him as the quarterbacks coach at the school, was arrested by Benton County Sheriff’s deputies on Nov. 2 after being after being stopped at 11 p.m. on West Pleasant Grove Road in Rogers, deputies said. His blood alcohol content level was .133, deputies said.

The school district confirmed on Monday (Nov. 11) that Qualls is still employed at the high school but would not say whether he has been suspended on otherwise disciplined.

Roger Hill, the district’s assistant superintendent for human resources, said he could not comment on personnel matters, but added, “We hold our employees to a very high standard.”
