GYMNASTICS: Texas coach arrested, accused of child sex abuse

DALLAS (AP) — An elite Texas gymnastics coach was arrested in Indiana after being accused of sexually assaulting three girls at a Fort Worth gym, police said Thursday.

Skipper Glenn Crawley, described as an elite-level team gymnastics coach, is accused of sexually assaulting the victims at Sokol gymnastics in Fort Worth, police said. Authorities arrested him on Wednesday after executing a warrant at an Indianapolis residence. He is being held at an Indiana jail, pending extradition.

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 the gym, said Crawley was suspended from the gym this spring. The same day the gym’s general manager received word of an allegation, Crawley was pulled from the gym floor, made aware of the allegation and escorted out of the building.
