The Clark County School District (CCSD) Police have arrested a former boys junior varsity soccer coach at Ed W. Clark High School and charged 25-year-old Juan Alfredo Chavez with one count of felony lewdness committed by a person over 18 with a child 14 or 15.

The arrest was the result of an incident that allegedly took place on Oct. 20, 2017, at the school and involved a 14-year-old female student. The 14-year-old student said Chaves made several advances to touch and kiss her near the school's baseball field.

Since Chavez was a volunteer and not a CCSD employee, as of Oct. 20, 2017, he is no longer allowed on any CCSD property and has been removed from the approved coaches list.

Chavez had served in a coaching capacity with CCSD since December 2010. He had successfully passed a background check in order to be a coach and have contact with students.
