SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Police have arrested a Sacramento high school soccer coach on charges he forced two teenage girls into prostitution, reports CBS Sacramento. 

Elan Seagraves, 34, was taken into custody in the early morning on Christmas Day.

Seagraves worked as a boys soccer coach at Sacramento’s John F. Kennedy High School and various other local youth leagues. He also works as a driver for Uber and Lyft. 

Seagraves is being held at Sacramento County Jail on $2 million bail.
