New Berlin — Christopher Foley, coach of the New Berlin West boys basketball team was arrested last week for possession of marijuana.
The case is being reviewed by the Waukesha County District Attorney’s Office for possible criminal prosecution. Foley has a previous marijuana violation.
Police have yet release information on how much marijuana was allegedly found or where it was located.
A letter to New Berlin West parents by Jordan Napoli, the athletic and activities director, was released stating:
“Last Friday evening, New Berlin West administrators suspected a staff member was in possession of illegal substances. We immediately contacted the New Berlin Police Department. The individual, whose responsibilities were as a special education assistant and boys basketball coach, was arrested Friday evening.
We are extremely disappointed in the alleged activities of this individual. The School District of New Berlin is committed to employing staff members who serve as positive role models for our students. Illegal substances have no place in our schools or by any staff member.”
The individual has been placed on administrative leave until further action is taken by the school district.”
Foley was replaced as head coach by Brandon Mattox.
