COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- Families in Naples are in shock over the arrest of their kids' basketball coach.

31-year-old Fritz Jacques is not allowed contact with the players on the Lely High School team after he was charged with battery.

He's accused of punching his girlfriend during an argument at her home.

Jacques graduated from Lely High in 2004 and became the boys basketball head coach three years ago.

Jacques, who also worked in the Exceptional Student Education Department, has been re-assigned to the administrative building pending the outcome of the investigation.
