STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Prosecutors are alleging a new probation violation by a volunteer football coach whose Ohio house was the scene of a party that preceded the 2012 rape of a girl by two high school football players.

Ohio Attorney General spokesman Dan Tierney says former coach Matt Belardine (BELL’-ahr-deen) is accused of violating his probation with a drunken driving arrest last week.

Belardine was sentenced to two months in jail last year after violating his original probation by being arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct in Arizona.

The 27-year-old Belardine pleaded no contest to one count of making a false statement and one count of enabling underage drinking for his role in the party before the rape.

A message seeking comment was left with his attorney.
