HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (WTVF) — A Christian County football coach is accused of sending explicit photos to a 15-year-old boy and asking for photos in return.

Hopkinsville police arrested 37-year-old Bryan Wimbleduff on Tuesday at the McDonald's on North Drive, where he works.

Christian County Schools confirmed Wednesday that he was a paraprofessional football coach at Christian County Middle School. He has since resigned from that position.

Police said he contacted the victim through Snapchat and requested pictures of the teen's genitals and asked for him to masturbate in exchange for money. Wimbleduff is also accused of sending the 15-year-old graphic pictures of himself.

Wimbleduff was charged with prohibited use of electric communication to procure a minor, promoting a minor in sex performance, and distribution of obscene matter to minors, first offense.

The Kentucky New Era reported Wimbleduff previously organized and participating in a McCoaches Night with CCHS coaches who served customers to raise money for the Ronald McDonald's House and the football program.
