A Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy girls basketball coach is under investigation after being arrested in what police are calling a "prostitution sting" in Willoughby.
Willoughby police said Ryan Tyna, 42, of Hudson, was arrested last week after responding to an ad placed on a website commonly used by prostitutes. The ad offered adult services for a special rate of $100 for a half hour.
Eleven other men were arrested along with Tyna Thursday and Friday, according to the police department's news release.
The men thought they'd meet a 20-year-old woman at a motel, the news release said. Instead they were met by police.
The men have been charged with soliciting and possession of criminal tools, both misdemeanors. They are scheduled to appear in Willoughby Municipal Court on the charges on March 7.
Tyna is in his second year coaching at the Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy in Cuyahoga Falls. He also is a social studies teacher at North High School in Eastlake.
The private school fired Tyna last week after his arrest, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Other arrests are: Timothy D. Asberry, 53, of Willoughby Hills; Gill S. Gurinder, 31, of North Royalton; Bryan Hess, 51, of Cuyahoga Falls: Efren Romero, 41, of Painesville; Nagi J. Haddad, 55, of Rocky River; Richard M. Salajcik, 47, of Eastlake; Raymond T. Kern, 50, of Mentor; Bert M. Brown, 55, of Beachwood; Ramone A. Davis, 26, of Cleveland; Johannes Reinhard, 64, of Palm Beach; and Eugene Preston, 38, of Beachwood.
