BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Baton Rouge track coach has been charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile after police say he propositioned one of his former students.

A 15-year-old girl says that she texted the coach Bobby Jones, 53, on April 1 asking for information about an upcoming track meet. He texted her back with the information and then called her about 30 minutes later.

The victim says the coach asked her about the other girls that use to be on the team then started asking her were there any boys she liked and if she was having sex with any of the boys. Then he asked her if she could have sex with him.

The victim told the defendant no and expressed how shocked she was. She called her mother and told her about it.

On April 8, her dad saw the coach at a track meet and the coach apologized to him saying he didn't know what had gotten into him. The situation became heated between the two.
