WREG in Memphis reports on a heated argument between Helena-West Helena School Board President Andrew Bagley and Jewel Hamilton, principal of Wahl Elementary.

A deputy superintendent had to step between the two as voices were raised and fingers pointed during a meeting with parents at the school.

Bagley, who has a grandchild at the school, said he spoke up because he didn’t like the way Hamilton was addressing parents.

Each has filed a complaint with police about the other’s behavior.

Superintendent John Hoy said he hopes to find a way to resolve the issue.
