FAIRFIELD - A former Connecticut high school girlsâ€™ soccer coach charged with exposing himself in front of a 16-year-old girl told police it was an accident.
David Sharpe, of Fairfield, was charged Saturday with public indecency and second-degree breach of peace.
The New Haven Register reports that police say Sharpe drove up to the girl in Fairfield in October and exposed himself. He's under investigation for a similar incident that occurred in Norwalk in September.
The 29-year-old Sharpe told investigators he's been putting on weight so he drives with his jeans unbuttoned because they don't fit. He says it's â€śpossibleâ€ť he accidentally exposed himself.
He resigned from his coaching job at Staples High School in Westport after speaking to police.
He's free on a promise to appear in court Dec. 13.
