Newsome High teacher put on leave after stalking charge

LITHIA —A Newsome High School teacher is accused of stalking a woman and traveling to Titusville to find her.

Between June 15 and Sept. 15, David Roland Daigle, 42, threatened the woman, telling her he would pay her back for two months of his life she had wasted, a Hillsborough County sheriff's arrest affidavit states.

He called her and visited family members' homes. The women felt in fear for her and her child's lives, the affidavit states.

Daigle was arrested Tuesday, charged with aggravated stalking. Hillsborough school officials have put Daigle on paid leave. Only the School Board can put a school employee on unpaid leave; its next meeting is Oct. 4.

Daigle has worked for the district since 2006, first as a substitute teacher. He's taught at Riverview High and King High and just started at Newsome this year. He taught marketing.

Authorities say the stalking charge is unrelated to his work at Newsome.

He remained in jail without bail Wednesday.
