LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The Clark County School District Police Department arrested a 21-year-old Mojave High School coach accused of having sexual contact with a student.
The department began investigating Michael Jones earlier this month. They announced his arrest on Wednesday.
He worked as a substitute volleyball coach at Mojave High School since 2019, CCSDPD said. His employment has been terminated.
According to his arrest report, a parent of a student allowed police to examine the student's phone records. Jones and the student allegedly met at a Walmart on Craig Road on Oct. 6. The following day, police received video from Walmart of the suspect with the student in his car for about an hour.
The two exchanged multiple text messages between September and October. According to the report, a friend of the student told her it was "creepy and weird that your 20-year-old coach is doing things with you."
Jones was booked into the Clark County Detention Center. He's expected in North Las Vegas Justice Court on Friday on one charge of a school employee or volunteer engaging in sex with a pupil.
CCSDPD asked anyone with information about the case or anyone who may have had inappropriate contact with Jones to call 702-799-5411.
