Lovejoy cheer coach resigns after naked sleepover allegation

— A Clayton County public school official Tuesday confirmed a report that a cheerleading coach at Lovejoy High School has resigned after claims that a sleepover game the coach watched had girls taking off their clothes at her house.

A report filed Monday with the Clayton County Sheriff’s office said that a student reported participating in a game called “Judge and Jury” at the coach’s Ellenwood home at a July 18 sleepover, with the coach serving as judge and the cheerleaders acting as jury.

If game questions weren’t answered correctly, according to the report, “they [cheerleaders] would have to either run laps around the school track or remove an article of clothing.”

The report went on to say that when the coach was questioned about the sleepover by Teresa Reeves of Clayton County Public Schools, the coach “said she closed her eyes and did not see if anyone remove [sic] all their clothing, only the students removed clothing to reveal their under garments.”

According to the report, Reeves said the coach resigned after talking with her about the incident.

The sheriff’s office is investigating the incident.

“There is also a question as to whether the incident was video taped as well,” the report said.

Clayton County Public Schools spokesman David Waller declined comment while the investigation is in progress.
