Hollon, the school’s former comptroller and consumer math teacher, was arrested on three charges May 31, including driving under the influence of alcohol, improper lane usage and receiving stolen property. Hollon was booked on the charges on May 31 and was released from the Shelby County Jail after posting bond June 1.

The first degree receiving stolen property charge is a Class B Felony and carries a punishment of between 2-20 years in prison along with a $30,000 fine. Shelby County Sheriff Operation Sgt. Josh Forrest said the charge is related to Hollon’s connection with Kingwood Christian School, but couldn’t provide further comment.

“It is related to the school,” Forrest said. “I can’t comment further because it is an ongoing criminal investigation.”

Hollon’s position as the school’s comptroller was terminated in late May. Kingwood Christian School education pastor Benny Cunningham released a statement saying the school would have no comment.

“The leadership of Kingwood Christian School regrets to hear of negative developments concerning any former employee,” Cunningham said. “However, it is inappropriate for us to comment on such matters when an employer-employee relationship no longer exists.”
