GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - A Bronson Middle/High School basketball coach was arrested for sexually battering two teenagers at his home in Gainesville.

Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Bill McCall, 39, early on Wednesday morning on charges of lewd and lascivious molestation, lewd and lascivious battery, and use of a communication device to facilitate a felony, and child cruelty.

The investigation was started by the Levy County Sheriff’s Office and transferred to the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office after the victims were interviewed.
