Gallatin Co. coach said to have been escorted from school by law enforcement
SEE UPDATE AT BOTTOM, 10:33 P.M.
GALLATIN CO.—We were told at about 3 p.m. today (02.24.10) that a coach/teacher at Gallatin County schools, Steve Vinyard, was escorted out of the schools by Scott Sauls, and someone was seen toting some boxes from the building at the same time.
It was the original understanding of our sources that there had been an arrest made, but we have not been able to officially confirmed that yet, hence the update and change in headline.
We have been in contact with Saline sources who have noted that IF there has been an arrest, Vinyard will not be held there, as the facility looks to be full, so the inference is that he will be transported to White County. We have also been in contact with White Co. Sheriff Doug Maier, who said that they “don’t have him yet,” but that he will notify us when they get him. This will probably include a mug shot as well as preliminary charges.
Vinyard is a former coach at Harrisburg High School. We are receiving information that he is related to a specific law enforcement official in the Harrisburg area; we know the name but are not saying at this time.
UPDATE 10:33 P.M.
We’re adding this after making it as a post at the bottom:
Our information had two law enforcement officers present: GallCo deputy Bobby Glover, who was called to the school at about 1:30; then a second source had it that Trooper Sauls had also been called, but unlike confirmation that Glover was present (which came from law enforcement officials), we could not confirm Sauls’ presence, try as we might.
We were NOT told he was restrained. We WERE told that someone toted boxes for him. We WERE told that IF he were going to be arrested, he would not be held at Saline, but would be transported to White; that was also confirmed by LE officials.
This is a bad situation but what we’re coming to learn about the investigation, it could definitely develop into a WORSE situation. Let’s hope everyone really does the right thing in this.
Again, no official arrest. More on this as we are able to get it on the site. Keep checking back.
