SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - The head basketball coach at Converse has been arrested and accused of shoplifting.

Deputies say employees at a Kohl’s department store in Spartanburg on Tuesday saw 35-year-old Kaye Waldrep and a man, 38-year-old Ricky Dean Ponder, hiding merchandise and trying to leave without paying.

Deputies say the items included shoes and perfume. Authorities say the items totaled just over $500.

Waldrep and Ponder are both charged with shoplifting under $2,000. It wasn’t immediately known if they had attorneys.

A Converse spokesman confirmed to WSPA-TV that Waldrep is the head coach for the Division II college.

Waldrep is in her second year at the school.
