Westport soccer coach resigns after Fairfield indecent exposure arrest

December 4, 2018

FAIRFIELD - A Westport girls’ soccer coach has been arrested after allegedly exposing himself to a juvenile girl last month.

David Sharpe, 29, of Warren Street in Fairfield, was arrested Saturday on a court warrant charging him with public indecency and breach of peace.

The incident happened in the area of Old Post Road and South Benson Road on Oct. 23.

“The victim, a juvenile, gave responding officers an accurate description of the suspect and the vehicle that he was driving,” Lt. Robert Kalamaras said.

“It was later revealed that David Sharpe was a girls’ soccer coach for Staples High School, from which he resigned after his interview with detectives.”

Sharpe was arrested on a warrant charging him with public indecency and breach of peace.

He was released on a promise to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court on Dec. 13.

Kalamaras said this case may be related to a similar incident that occurred in Norwalk on Sept. 26 in which a second victim was identified.

Norwalk and Fairfield police are coordinating their investigations for the possibility of additional charges.
