BERLIN CENTER, Ohio (WKBN) – Former Western Reserve football coach Andy Hake received a citation for a drug abuse — marijuana charge.

The charge stems from an incident in January in which he was accused of smoking an electronic cigarette containing THC in a staff bathroom.

Coworkers complained a staff bathroom smelled like marijuana, and Hake was spotted walking out of the bathroom. When Hake was confronted, he admitted to using a vape pen to smoke THC in the bathroom before teaching and supervising students, according to a disciplinary letter from the school district.

Hake will receive a court date for his arraignment on the charge.
