Pennsylvania high school football coach faces DUI charges

By

The football coach at Littlestown High in Pennsylvania is facing two counts of driving under the influence after a traffic stop in June, according to the Hanover (Pa.) Evening Sun.

Mike Lippy, who has been the coach for 12 seasons and has a record of 95-42, will be arraigned Aug. 20, according to the report.

According to court documents, he failed a field sobriety test after being pulled over for failing to use a turn signal. His blood alcohol content was found to be .139; the state’s legal limit is .08.

His attorney, Jeffery Cook, told the Sun that Lippy plans to plead not guilty. As a first-time offender, he could enter a pre-trial program intended to rehab the accused without having to plead guilty or face trial.

“The district has addressed the situation and we are moving forward,” Littlestown Athletic Director Jeff Laux told the Sun, declining to add additional comment.
