DELRAY BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Atlantic High School football coach Andre Thaddies has been arrested by school police and temporarily re-assigned to an administrative position in the school district.

The school district has said he will not be allowed on school grounds until an investigation is over.

According to our partners at the Palm Beach Post, the arrest stems from accusations the coach groped and bit two female students. He's been charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery.

The arrest report states one of the students said he reached to grab her behind, grabbed her wrist, and called her retarded. The other student said Thaddies bit her on the back of neck.

The report also stated he was suspected of sexually inappropriate conduct with a student at his former school in Wisconsin.

He was also arrested last year for punching his wife during a Super Bowl party. Charges in that case were later dismissed.

We will keep you updated on with any new information on these latest charges involving Atlantic High School students.
