William C. Jacobs, 41, of Fayetteville was arrested on Wedington Drive in a black Dodge pickup truck driving south, the report states.

Jacobs was booked into the Washington County Detention Center on suspicion of DWI, improper turn, and improper lane usage, according to the report.

The school would not confirm whether or not he was going to be suspended.

    The school will not suspend him. How many coaches or teachers in Springdale are still holding positions after multiple DWI’s and / or other charges? It would be quite a long list. The Athletic Director does not make his coaches lead by example. This district has many issues yet they go ignored time after time. I personally do not hold anything against Mr. Jacobs because I know he is human. Being paid by tax dollars, teaching children he needs to be held at a higher standard. Not to the standard that the former AD was held to.

    They won’t Sarah. Former AD had a couple DUI’s, soccer coach, teacher from Young elementary (came to school drunk) they just don’t really care in Springdale. They pay these folks really good money but do not expect much out of them.

    On Wedington Drive driving South? He must’ve been far out of town because I’ve only seen Wedington running East-West.
