A North Las Vegas high school substitute teacher and football coach was arrested in a student-sex case just days after he and his wife made news as parents of the area's first New Year's baby.

Clark County school police Capt. Ken Young said Thursday that 29-year-old Ryan Davis was arrested Wednesday after questioning about two counts of sexual misconduct with an 18-year-old female student.

According to the arrest report, Davis admitted to the relationship after officers showed him text messages between him and the student.

Davis told police they had sex twice and added that he was stressed out from dealing with his pregnant wife.

Davis' wife wasfeatured on 13 Action News after the birth of the couple's second daughter at 12:27 a.m. Sunday at Sunrise Children's Hospital.
Davis teaches and coaches at Legacy High School.
Young says police learned this week of allegations that the incidents occurred in 2016 off school property.
Jail records showed Davis was freed on bail from the Clark County jail pending an initial court appearance on felony sex with a pupil charges.
It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

Parents at Legacy High School couldn't believe the news.  

"I was shocked," says Kaysi Hanks, whose son, Taylor, is in the ninth grade. "It's just not ethical and he is in charge as a figure in the community. It shouldn't have happened. He's an authoritative figure."

Francis Ackan's daughter is in the ninth grade here as well. Ackan worries whether his daughter is safe.
"How can this happen at school? That's no good. I feel uncomfortable."
