Sheriff's office investigates bizarre behavior of middle school coach

The Alcorn County Sheriff's Department is investigating the bizarre behavior of a Kossuth Middle School basketball coach.

The coach was arrested on campus by investigators about 2 p.m. Wednesday for public intoxication and possession of a controlled substance, said Alcorn County Sheriff Ben Caldwell.

Although Caldwell did not reveal the name of the man arrested, the Daily Corinthian has learned the coach is Micah McKay Wilbanks.

Wilbanks was arrested after investigators were called to the school.

Formal charges were expected to be filed today and the Daily Corinthian has also learned additional charges may be filed in the case.

"The investigation is ongoing," said Caldwell.

The sheriff promised to release additional information to the Daily Corinthian has it becomes available.
