WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A teacher at Snipes Academy of Arts & Design was arrested for DWI and speeding Sunday according to police reports. Records show Wilmington Police arrested Olivia Grace Williams, 30, around 2 a.m. Sunday at 1180 Market Street.
Williams is a dance teacher at Snipes according to her page on the school’s website.
A New Hanover County Schools spokeswoman confirmed Williams works for the district, but would not comment beyond that.
Parents we spoke with today at Snipes did not want to go on camera. Some said they were concerned that a teacher was arrested, and they didn’t feel comfortable having someone who’d been arrested teaching their kids. Others said they understand people make mistakes and want to see how the process plays out.
We tried to speak with Williams today, but we were unable to reach her for comment.
