WHITEHALL (AP) -- A seventh-grade girls basketball coach is charged with a felony in Trempealeau County for allegedly burning his players with dry ice.
Brady Olson is also a high school chemistry teacher in the Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau School District. A criminal complaint says a player told police Olson put dry ice on the girls' knees and thighs, leaving burn marks. The complaint says the 42-year-old coach also used dry ice to blow off a garbage can cover and cause water to shoot from a bottle during practice.
Olson said he was just trying to "make things fun for the girls." The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram (http://bit.ly/GJq071 ) says he's charged with felony child abuse and misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
