High School Coach Turned in for Providing Alchohol to Minors

David Albrecht, a Woodbury High School Assistant Wrestling Coach, has been accused by five of his wrestlers for offering them bear at the state high school wrestling tournament according to police, reported the Pioneer Press Monday.

Albrecht, 21, walked into a St. Paul Hotel room Feb. 29 with a case of beer and two high school girls, according to the search warrant affidavit filed in Ramsey County District Court. He then offered beer everyone in the room according to the document. In the room were five Woodbury high school wrestlers, all underage, according to the Star Tribune.

The wrestlers left the room, but when they returned and Albrecht was still there they reported him to school authorities, according to Dennis Lazenbury, father of one of the boys in the room.

Albrecht has not been charged yet, but is being investigated for providing alchohol to minors, which is a gross misdemenor. Albrecht was a former wrestler at Woodbury and was in his first year as assistant coach.

"My son, it bothered him a lot that he was put in that situation," said Lazenberry."The kids stuck together and did the right thing in an awkward situation."
