Maumelle police announce the arrest of the assistant women's basketball coach at Maumelle High on drug charges.

On 1/12/12 at 9:20 a.m. Brittany Burns was arrested after an investigation resulted in the seizure of methamphetamine and other drugs. A traffic stop was conducted as Burns was leaving the Maumelle High School campus by Maumelle Patrol Officers as a result of this investigation and during the course of this stop, the drugs were found on her person and in her vehicle.

Ms. Burns is employed by the Pulaski County Special School District as a Physical Education Teacher at the Maumelle High School. She is also an assistant coach for the Maumelle High School girls basketball team.

Burns, 35, lives in North Little Rock. Police said she was charged with two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine, Endocet, Percocet, Opana, Adderall, Dexedrine); two counts of misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance (Lortab, Klonopin); one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, and operating a vehicle with expired tags. The enhancement of possession of a controlled substance in proximity of certain places (high school) has also been filed.

STATEMENT FROM PULASKI COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT: “Our goal is to ensure all students, teachers and school officials have a focus on teaching and learning and experience a safe and orderly environment. We will continue to partner with the Maumelle Police Department regarding investigations such as these. Because this is a personnel issue we are limited legally in what we can say and details we can provide.” She has been suspended pending completion of the investigation.
