Teacher Arrested Three Times in One Week for Unlawful Weapons Possession and Threats of Harm

A Florida man, identified as Hawazin Gridley Wright, faced a series of legal troubles, resulting in three arrests within a single week on various charges. Initial reports reveal that on November 19, Wright was apprehended during a pro-Palestine protest in West Palm Beach for allegedly running through the demonstration and concealing a knife beneath his guitar.

He faced charges related to unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon, resisting arrest, and traffic obstruction. Wright entered not-guilty pleas for the first two charges, and no plea has been recorded for the traffic violation charge, WPDECBS 12, and WPTV report.

However, his legal issues persisted, and by November 24, he found himself in police custody again. This time, he was charged with possession of drugs and assault with a deadly weapon. Notably, Wright has not entered a plea for these subsequent charges.

The string of arrests did not end there. Following his release, Wright, described as a teacher at Boynton Beach Community High School, was arrested once more on the following Sunday.

This time, the charges were related to allegedly threatening a woman with death and making antisemitic comments. Court records indicate charges of harassing phone calls and written threats to cause harm. Wright has yet to enter a plea for these charges.

The arrest affidavit reveals disturbing details, stating that the woman, aged 46, faced threats and harassment after attempting to cease contact upon learning about Wright’s criminal record.

The reported threats included warnings about how she communicated with him, references to her as a “dead woman walking,” and an alarming desire to “punch a Jew in the face.” The affidavit also mentions a threat that the woman would be dead if she allowed Wright’s calls to go to voicemail.

It remains unclear if the woman is of Jewish faith, and hate-crime charges are not evident in court records. Efforts to reach Wright’s attorney for immediate comment were unsuccessful, and the status of his employment at the school remains unclear. The case highlights a series of serious charges against Wright, raising concerns about his alleged threatening behavior and antisemitic comments.
