A youth baseball coach in Metairie, Louisiana, has been arrested on suspicion of sexual behavior with minors.
William Carter Mehrhoff, 49, who goes by “Coach Carter,” was acquainted with one of the victims partially through his association with Lakeshore Playground as a volunteer coach. He was arrested for one count of sexual battery in an incident believed to have occurred in 2014-2015, and one count of sexual battery for a series of incidents believed to have occurred in the 1990s.
