BISD names Reggie Bozeman lead officer for police department in wake of chief's termination

BEAUMONT - The Beaumont school district has named Reggie Bozeman the lead officer for the BISD Police Department after the board of managers voted to terminate Clydell Duncan's contract, according to a BISD spokeswoman. Duncan was the BISD police chief.

The board also voted Thursday night to suspend Duncan without pay.

The district hasn't named an interim chief.

The superintendent wouldn't elaborate on what prompted the termination of Duncan’s contract. BISD spokeswoman Nakisha Myles says he didn't have proper certification.

About a dozen officers from the department joined community members at Thursday’s meeting but many left when the board of managers postponed a vote on the police department's future. The decision to terminate Duncan’s contract came at the end of the meeting.

NFL Chief Roger Goodell to make special statement at 2 p.m.

The NFL is partnering with a domestic violence hotline and a sexual violence resource center.

Responding to increasing criticism that the league has not acted quickly or emphatically enough concerning domestic abuse cases involving players, Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to the clubs late Thursday announcing the partnerships.

The league will provide financial, operational and promotional support to the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.

Goodell said this will “enable both the hotline and NSVRC to help more people affected by domestic violence and sexual assault.”

Goodell and some NFL teams have been heavily criticized for lenient or delayed punishment of Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and other players involved in recent domestic violence cases. Less than three weeks into the season, five such cases have made headlines.

Father kills daughter, six grandchildren, turns gun on self
By TAMARA LUSH  Associated Press
BELL, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a man who spent time in prison a decade ago for the shooting death of his young son killed six of his grandchildren, his adult daughter and himself in a rampage at a home in the small Florida town of Bell.

Don Spirit called 911 Thursday afternoon. Gilchrist County Sheriff Robert Schultz says Spirit committed suicide when a deputy arrived. The bodies of his daughter and her six children were found on the property.

Jail records show that his daughter, Sarah Lorraine Spirit, had been on probation for a 2013 grand theft arrest.

Don Spirit had a criminal record in Tampa, where he was arrested in 1990 on a felony fugitive warrant. Other arrests include misdemeanor battery, drug charges and depriving a child of food and shelter.
