Volunteer coach at Las Vegas high school arrested on sex, kidnap charges

Clark County School District police arrested a volunteer coach at Shadow Ridge High School on Monday on charges of kidnapping and sexual misconduct with a student.

Jousha Youngblood, 27, was arrested after an investigation initiated this month, according to police. He was terminated from his volunteer position on Monday; he had held the role since May 2018.

Police received an anonymous letter on Oct. 8 alleging that Youngblood was having an inappropriate relationship with a student who is now 17 years old, said Sgt. Bryan Zink. Zink said the relationship started some time in the previous school year.
