A former assistant coach at Maumelle High School who was fired after allegations she had drugs in her possession while leaving the school in 2012 is facing new charges after an arrest last week.
The Bryant Police Department says Brittany Burns, 36, completed a drug deal Thursday while a 9-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl were in her car. Burns is charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor, three counts of theft by receiving and one count of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine.
According to a news release from the police department, officers received information about a possible drug deal in the parking lot of a Lowe's in Bryant and then watched Burns pull in and "complete a transaction."
She was then arrested.
Police say the boy and girl with Burns were released to their mother. A department spokesman said Burns is friends with the mother.
Burns is being held in the Saline County jail in lieu of $5,000 bond.
Burns was an assistant girls basketball coach at Maumelle High School when she was arrested Jan. 12, 2012, on accusations she had methamphetamine and prescription pills in her possession as she was leaving the campus. Burns was suspended and later fired from the post.
