According to law enforcement officials at Lamar County Jail, Michael D. Freeman was arrested on June 21, 2018 at 5:43 p.m. on a warrant out of Bowie County for inappropriate relationship with a student.  

 

Freeman was employed with Maud ISD until December 2016, when he took a job at Clarksville ISD.  Clarksville terminated his employment shortly thereafter for reasons unknown. According to a grievance filed by a Maud ISD parent, Freeman is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a Maud student, and when this relationship was discovered by Maud school officials, was allowed to resign and accept a position with Clarksville ISD without this relationship being reported to Texas Education Agency, as required by law.  According to grievance documents, the relationship was eventually reported in January 2017.

 

Freeman is being held at Lamar County Jail pending a bond hearing, which is expected to take place later this morning.  The Tribune will provide updates to this story as they are received.
