A Little Rock teacher is facing criminal trespassing charges after trying to confront KARK reporter Mitchell McCoy after he did a story on inappropriate social media posts.

According to the station, Lance Fritchman was suspended from McCleallan High School following the station’s inquiry with the school district about the teacher’s recent social media posts. On Twitter he made reference to White History Month, the hashtag #Whitelivesmatter and the phrase “I love being White” among others.

After learning about his suspension on Monday, Fritchman went to the station to confront McCoy. KARK-FOX16 had to escort him off the property multiple times. He continued to return and also contacted the station by phone.


He was arrested Tuesday morning. No one was hurt.
