Former Coffee County head baseball coach Bradley Weir is in trouble again and this time it’s for a totally different reason.
Police in Franklin County were searching for Weir, who allegedly threatened to kill people at the Blue Gill Grill restaurant just outside Coffee County. He threaten people at the restaurant with an assault rifle. He was arrested in Chattanooga on Sunday and charged with domestic violence.
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 at the Blue Gill Grill. 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.
He left the scene and Franklin County authorities issued an alert to be on the lookout for the 44 year-old Weir.
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.
Now that Weir has been found, Investigators will be looking into whether he violated any of his bond conditions during the domestic dispute.
