LRSD Teacher Arrested for Criminal Trespass at TV Stations

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A Little Rock School District (LRSD) teacher has been arrested for criminal trespass following a series of harassing visits and messages to two news stations Monday.

Lance Fritchman, 52, who works at McClellan High School, was suspended by the LRSD on Friday after our reporter Mitch McCoy questioned the district about some of his social media (Twitter) posts shown below. 

The tweets made reference to White History Month, #WhiteLivesMatters, the phrase "I love being White," and included disparaging remarks about participants of last year's Women's March.

After learning of his suspension, Fritchman came to KARK and Fox16 multiple times Monday and had to be escorted from the property by police. After being told to leave, he returned to the property and continued to contact the station via telephone. 

Fritchman was arrested Tuesday morning.
