A high school baseball coach was charged with shoplifting after Spartanburg police said he stole baseball equipment and then returned to put it back on the shelf.
Travis Henson, 38, of Greer, was charged with shoplifting in connection to the incident, according to Spartanburg arrest records.
A Spartanburg Public Safety report said that Henson selected two baseball bats and a glove and then concealed the items in Walmart bags before leaving the store.
Henson then returned to the store and placed the items back on the shelf in their original location, the report said. Police said he was then stopped by a representative of the store.
Attorney Stephen Denton said he has known Henson for a long time and doesn't believe this. Denton believes Henson is innocent and will give him a vigorous defense.
Greenville County Schools has made a statement about the case and has confirmed that Henson is a social studies teacher and coach at Blue Ridge High School. Henson serves as assistant football coach and head baseball coach, according to the statement.
A representative for the school system said that Henson will be placed on administrative leave pending an investigation of the charges.
