• West Tennessee Coach Faces Prostitution Charges After Parking Lot Incident

Police arrested two men on charges of prostitution, including a coach and teacher at Riverside High School in Decatur County.

Officers patrolled the 400 block of South Broad Street about 2 a.m. Monday when they saw a vehicle with two men inside parked in front of a closed business there.

“At that time of night, it was unusual and somewhat suspicious for a vehicle to be parked there,” Officer Middleton said.

Once the officer approached the car, he saw Adam Comer and Ryan Weimar engaged in a sexual act.  The officer then realized, through his observations and interviews with the two men at the time of their arrest, that prostitution had occurred.

Comer, 32, who is a first-year soccer coach and teacher at Riverside High School, had agreed to pay Weimar,26, for sexual services, Middleton said.

Both men were charged with prostitution, a Class A misdemeanor.

State statute raises prostitution from a Class B misdemeanor to a Class A misdemeanor whenever prostitution occurs within a close proximity to a school or church.  The two men’s arrest occurred near a school and some churches.

Decatur County school officials could not be reached.

Comer and Weimar were released from the Henderson County Jain on a bond of $1,000 each. 

Their arraignment is set for 8 a.m. June 5 in Henderson County General Sessions Court.
