By  | 

A former Glasgow gymnastics coach who once taught here in Bowling Green is behind bars tonight. Forty-seven-year-old Donald Randolph Murphy of Henderson Kentucky is charged with one count of solicitation of a minor in Stewart County Tennessee.

Murphy was arrested after he allegedly engaged in sexually explicit chats with a 15-year-old female on the Internet. He's being held in the Stewart County jail on a $50,000 bond and will appear in court tomorrow.

Murphy taught gymnastics in Bowling Green prior to moving to Glasgow and currently resides in Henderson where he is self-employed gymnastics coach.
