Milton HS track coach arrested for indecent assault
MILTON, Mass. (WHDH) -- A Milton High School track coach was arrested for indecent assault and battery on a minor.
Milton Police arrested 64-year-old Dale Snyder at his Abington home Friday. He was accused of indecent assault on a young female student.
Snyder is a long-time girl’s track coach and chemistry teacher at Milton High School. In a letter sent out to the Milton community in 2009, he was commended as the track coach extraordinaire. He was also inducted into Massachusetts’ Track Coach Hall of Fame that same year.
Police said they started the investigation earlier this week and the school district immediately put him on administrative leave. Following a further investigation, police arrested him.
He will remain in jail until his court appearance on Monday.
The superintendent, Milton school board members and the athletic director did not return any calls.
