Bradley Central High School coach charged with assault in June 11 incident in Hamilton County

A Bradley Central High School teacher and coach was arrested June 11 after an altercation at a party in Hamilton County in which someone allegedly used an offensive term for a person with developmental disabilities.

Daniel Quincy Hearn, 44, of the 1400 block of Buttonwood Loop, Chattanooga, is listed as a history teacher and assistant football and track coach at the high school.

Hearn was arrested on two counts of assault stemming from a remark made at a party at a nearby home on Buttonwood Loop in East Brainerd, according to an affidavit in Hamilton County General Sessions Court.

Hearn declined to comment when contacted Wednesday by phone. His status with Bradley County Schools is unknown.

"We do not comment on personal and personnel matters, and we will not comment," school system spokeswoman Brittany Cannon said Wednesday when contacted by phone.
