Texas gymnastics coach arrested, accused of child sex abuse

Posted: Updated:

DALLAS (AP) - A Texas gymnastics coach accused of sexually assaulting three girls has been arrested in Indiana.
  
Fort Worth police say Skipper Glenn Crawley was arrested Wednesday after authorities executed a warrant at an Indianapolis residence. He is being held at an Indiana jail, pending extradition.
  
The department reports Crawley, a former assistant coach at the University of Oklahoma, had been wanted for the continuous sexual abuse of a child, along with two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.
  
Russell Prince, an attorney for the board that runs Sokol gymnastics, says Crawley was an elite-level team gymnastics coach at the gym, but was suspended in April after the club received word of an allegation.
  
He says the allegations are tied to Crawley's role as a gymnastics coach.
