Bremen coach suspended with pay after arrest

The superintendent of Bremen Schools has suspended Bremen High School's head football coach with pay after his arrest.

Holmes was arrested Wednesday at his home on County Road 250 South after allegedly throwing his girlfriend to the bathroom floor three times, according to LaPorte County Police.

Superintendent Dr. Jim White announced Bob Holmes was suspended from his teaching position with pay on Friday.

“In light of the charges made against Mr. Holmes, I feel compelled to take this action. While Mr. Holmes should have every right to resolve the charges filed against him, I must insure the safety of our students and that they are being taught by teachers they can trust and respect.”
