Mid Michigan Community College softball coach charged with sexual assault

A Mid Michigan Community College softball player accuses a school coach of acting inappropriately towards her, and police are investigating.

The report made to the Mount Pleasant Police Department is sent to the Isabella County District Attorney.

He will decide whether the coach should be indicted in criminal proceedings.

The police report says that on January 29, a Mid Michigan Community College softball player said that one of his coaches sexually assaulted her.

She says he grabbed her and kissed her several times.

The woman says her team trained at Pickens Field before the incident.

Later that night, she says one of her trainers texted her saying he hit a deer and it damaged his car.

The woman says she is a hunter and asked if he needed help finding the deer.

The report says he answered “yes” but told her not to tell anyone they were together as it could get him in trouble.

From there, the police report says he picked her up, took her to where the accident happened, and they found the deer.

The woman says everything was fine until he dropped her off at her apartment.

She told the police that he grabbed her neck, pulled her towards him and kissed her forcefully.

She said she pushed back and told him “no”.

According to his interview in the police report, he did it again.

She says at that moment that she hit him in the chest.

The woman says she got scared and ran out of the truck and into her apartment.

She told the police that this was the first time something like this had happened.

The police report says the coach initially denied any physical contact, but later told them he only had her in his arms and she tried to kiss him.

We have contacted the Mid Michigan Community College athletic office, but have yet to hear back.

There have been no arrests or charges at this point, but the Isabella County District Attorney will review the case.
