Clark County School District police arrested a former high school varsity coach for lewdness after he tried to kiss a teenager.

Juan Alfredo Chavez, 25, was arrested Thursday on one count of felony lewdness committed by a person over 18 with a child 14- or 15-years-old.

Chavez served as a boys varsity soccer coach at Ed W. Clark High School. School police said he was a volunteer and not a school district employee.

Police said the arrest was the result of an incident that reportedly took place on Oct. 20 at the school involving a 14-year-old girl.

Chavez's arrest report showed he was caught on camera attempting to kiss a girl. The girl said she didn't want him to do anything to her and said the incident was "pretty scary."

As of Oct. 20, Chavez is no longer allowed on any CCSD property and has been removed from the approved coaches list. He served as a coach since Dec. 2010 and successfully passed a background check, police said.
