Chino Valley High School Track Coach Caught Having Sex in Car...With a Student

A track coach at a Chino Valley high school was arrested yesterday after a cop caught him having sex with a teenage student in his car as it sat parked at a local park.

According to Prescott police, an officer on routine patrol saw a car parked at Heritage Park in Prescott early yesterday morning. The park wasn't yet open, so the officer decided to check it out.

Inside the car, the officer found 20-year-old Elisha Humes, a volunteer track coach at Chino Valley High School, having sex with a 15-year-old girl.

The girl is a student at the school, and police suspect the two have had sex in the past.

Humes, obviously, was arrested. He's been charged with three counts of sexual conduct with a minor, one count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation, and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
