A Trinity Valley Community College women’s basketball coach and player were arrested Wednesday night due to events that took place after their team’s loss to Blinn College at the P.E. Building here. Trinity Valley head coach Bill Damuth was charged with evading arrest and a player, freshman Lesha Dunn, was charged with assaulting a public servant. Both were taken to the Washington County jail.
At about 9:30 a.m. today, Damuth was arraigned and had posted $1,500 bail. As of 10:30 a.m. Dunn, a 6-foot-4 freshman from Toronto, was still in jail waiting to post bond which was set at $2,500.
Blinn College athletic director David Rehr said that after the game, as the game officials were headed to their dressing room, Damuth attempted to intercept them. When a police officer stopped Damuth and identified himself, Damuth continued to attempt to physically reach the referees, leading to his arrest. The player was arrested after attempting to come to the aid of her coach. Cathy Boeker, Blinn’s executive administrator for external affairs, said “the game was quite heated” and it was the coach being upset with the calls the referees made that set the incident in motion.
