Clarkrange Baseball Coach Arrested On DUI & Drug Charges

Roger-webbA Thursday afternoon traffic stop last week resulted in the arrest of a local high school baseball coach on drug charges.

According to reports, Clarkrange High School baseball coach Roger Webb, 52, was stopped by Fentress County Deputy Sheriff Chris Anderson for allegedly driving erratically as Webb was on his way to a baseball game.

Webb was administered a field sobriety test by officer Anderson, which he reportedly failed, after which Mr. Webb was taken into custody and charged with DUI.

Deputy Anderson also reportedly found in Mr. Webb’s possession a bottle which contained a Schedule II Controlled Substance.

Webb was subsequently placed under arrest and transported to the Fentress County Jail where he was incarcerated and his bond was set at $20,000, pending a hearing in General Sessions Court.

Coach Webb retired from teaching last year, but was still serving in the capacity of baseball coach at Clarkrange High School.

He has been dismissed from that position.
