A Caldwell ISD teacher accused of injuring a child was arrested last week following his resignation from the district, according to law enforcement.

According to Caldwell Police Chief Charles Barnes, Brad Vestal was taken into custody May 15 and charged with injury to a child. Vestal had been a teacher with the district’s disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP) but resigned before his arrest. More information was not immediately available.

According to Snook ISD superintendent Brenda Krchnak, Vestal had previously served as a principal in the Snook district. An Eagle article from 2010 listed a Brad Vestal as the principal of Snook High School.

Injury to a child is considered a felony by the Texas penal code, with varying degrees of severity depending on case specifics.
