Boxing coach in Johnson City faces drug charges

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- A boxing coach for juveniles has been arrested on charges of selling cocaine and Ecstasy in Johnson City, Tenn.

Director Mike Adams of the 1st Judicial District Drug Task Force said Wednesday that 35-year-old Brad Austin is being held on $225,000 bond in the Washington County Detention Center.

Adams said the charges resulted from undercover buys at the Johnson City Athletic Club where Austin works.

Austin was not believed to be selling to juveniles or his students, Adams said. The sales occurred in the gym's parking lot.
