Two High School Coaches Charged with Battery

Allegedly approved beating of teammate

LOMPOC, Calif. - Two Cabrillo High School wrestling coaches are charged with battery on a minor. This comes after a student athlete claimed he was beat up by his teammates.

Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced today that three charges are being brought against Chad Johnson, 45 and Matthew Giles, 22 because they allegedly approved of the beating.

The beating occurred last year in December on the school campus. Both coaches are ordered to appear in court later this month.
