LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) - Long Beach High School's head football coach was arrested last week, and school officials aren't talking about it.

WLOX News has learned that Charles "Bo" VonderBruegge was arrested Thursday night in Long Beach for a misdemeanor DUI charge. Long Beach Police say VonderBruegge was driving carelessly on Commission Road near Daughtery Road. Officers on the scene said the coach had an open container in his vehicle and refused a breathalyzer test.

When asked about the allegations against VonderBruegge, Long Beach Schools Superintendent Carolyn Hamilton said, "We will investigate."

However, she wouldn't elaborate on what sort of disciplinary action the school district employee may face if he's found guilty on the DUI charge.

"Any personnel issue, I can't discuss," Hamilton said.

VonderBruegge was recently hired as the head football coach at Long Beach High School. Before taking the head coach position, he was the school's assistant coach and former head coach at Pass Christian High School.
