Conway High School’s head football coach was arrested in connection with third-degree assault Thursday morning, according to J. Reuben Long Detention Center records.
Horry County School spokeswoman Teal Britton sent out a release May 30 stating David “Chuck” Jordan has been placed on administrative leave with pay, pending an investigation into an incident at the school the afternoon of May 26. The incident involved Jordan, a substitute teacher and a Conway High student. The school, along with HCS, has launched an investigation into what transpired.
Jordan, 60, of Conway, is charged in connection with third-degree assault and battery, and his bond has been set at $500, online jail records show.
It’s unclear whether Jordan’s arrest has anything to do with the ongoing investigation. Teal Britton said the investigation into the incident on May 26 is still ongoing and couldn’t confirm whether Jordan’s recent arrest was in connection with that investigation. She referred all questions about Jordan’s arrest Thursday to Conway police. The Sun News has reached out to Conway police for details.
