By , Columbian Sports Editor

Jess Pritchard is no longer Skyview High School’s wrestling head coach after his arrest on suspicion of felony assault on Jan. 18.

According to a probable-cause affidavit, Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to Pritchard’s home for a report of a domestic disturbance.

There, deputies found an alleged victim bleeding with what appeared to be a broken nose. The Columbian is not naming the alleged victim because they are a minor.

Pritchard, 48, was booked into the Clark County Jail and made his first appearance in Clark County Superior Court on Jan. 19. He was charged with felony second-degree assault (domestic violence), released on his personal recognizance and ordered to have no direct contact with the alleged victim.

Pritchard, who has no prior criminal record, works as a district resource officer at Skyview.

Vancouver Public Schools spokesperson Pat Nuzzo confirmed that Pritchard remains employed by the district but is no longer coaching at Skyview.
