Less than two weeks after the football field house at Marion County High School was vandalized, a joint investigation by the Jasper police and the Marion County Sheriff's Department has led to a shocking arrest, according to The Chattanooga Times Free Press.



In a bizarre twist, Marion County teacher and assistant football coach Michael Schmitt was arrested and booked into the Marion County jail on charges of vandalism of $1,000-$10,000.

Officers involved believe the vandalism was an attempt to inspire the Marion County football team before its game against county rival South Pittsburg. However, the Pirates won the game 35-17, according to The Times Free Press.
