A Texas soccer coach, J.D. Bales, was arrested for allegedly spending over $5,000 of district money at a Houston strip club using his school district credit card.

Despite initially denying the charge’s legitimacy, an investigation proved otherwise.

Bales resigned from his teaching and coaching positions following allegations of misconduct regarding district funds. (Trending: Melania Trump Announces Big Change For 2024)

“During the investigation, which included information that Bales had formerly claimed the charge was fraudulent (with both the school and the financial institution), investigators discovered evidence indicating a criminal offense occurred,” Bridgeport Police Chief Steve Stanford said.

“Bales eventually submitted payment for the charge,” he added.

“However, due to the overwhelming evidence in the case (most importantly the case involved taxpayer money), I believed it was prudent to submit the case to the Wise County District Attorney.”

“[Bales] resigned from both his coaching position and his role as a [special education] teacher at Bridgeport Middle School [Sept. 8],” Bridgeport Independent School District Superintendent Dr. Amy Ellis said, stating that his resignation was “in the best interest of Bridgeport ISD and the athletic program.”

In addition, six players under Bales’ leadership were arrested on misdemeanor charges of hazing.
