Prairie Grove Coach Submits Letter of Resignation After Allowing Student to be Tased


A Prairie Grove High School baseball coach submitted a letter of resignation after he was cited for one count of endangering the welfare of a minor.

Chris Mileham submitted his letter of resignation Thursday, according to Superintendent Reba Holmes.

According to Prairie Grove Police Department Capt. Jeff O’Brien, an anonymous source said that Mileham was allowing kids to smoke and vape during baseball practice.

Police say Mileham also allowed a student to be tased. He allowed a student to leave the classroom to grab a TASER out of a vehicle and tase the other student to avoid further baseball conditioning at practice. The tasing happened on campus in the classroom.

A school resource officer cited Mileham sometime after the incident.

Mileham is a baseball coach, in addition, he teaches health and physical education. 

Holmes added the school board does not meet until next month. The board will make the decision to accept or deny Mileham’s resignation.
