Former Coffee County head baseball coach Brad Weir was released from the Franklin County Jail after being charged with domestic violence on Sunday. He was found Sunday afternoon by Hamilton County officials. Weir served 12 hours that are mandated by state law. He was then released on a $5,000 bond. He is to appear in Franklin County General Sessions Court June 8.
Police in Franklin County were searching for Weir, who allegedly threatened to kill people near Bluegill Grill restaurant just outside Coffee County at Tims Ford Lake. He threatened people saying he had an assault rifle around 7:45am on May 3.
Sgt. Chris Guess with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office says that according to a report, Weir got into a fight with his ex-girlfriend’s husband. The domestic dispute escalated very quickly.
The report states that Weir said he had assault rifles in his car. He threatened to kill his ex-girlfriend, her husband and everyone else in the restaurant.
Weir worked for the Coffee County Raider Academy as a teacher and was head baseball coach at the high school. This was his first year with the school system after being hired as baseball coach in late May of 2014. He was arrested by Manchester Police on February 3, 2015 for statutory rape by an authority figure.
According to a police report, an episode allegedly occurred on January 29, 2015 and apparently involved a 15-year-old female at Weir’s residence on Hills Chapel Rd in Manchester.
Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott said Monday morning that he will file a motion to revoke Weir’s bond on the Coffee County charge.
