WHITEFISH BAY -- A championship-winning basketball coach from Whitefish Bay's Dominican High School was arrested for third-degree sexual assault. Paul Wollersheim hasn't yet been charged, but FOX6 News is told prosecutors are pondering felony charges.

Wollersheim led the Whitefish Bay Dominican High School Knights basketball team to its third state championship this past winter.

The celebration was supposed to continue last week, but on Graduation Day, Coach Wollersheim, who also serves as the school's Athletic Director, was behind bars, accused of third-degree sexual assault.

Colleen Brady, the head of Dominican High School, did not want to talk on camera, but told FOX6 News over the phone that Wollersheim and another employee were in the school just after 1:00 a.m. Friday morning, May 25th.

The employee reportedly went to the police less than an hour later, accusing Wollersheim of making inappropriate contact.

"At this point I have to wait until the investigation is complete, and cooperating as best I can with the Whitefish Bay Police Department," Brady said.

No one was home when FOX6 News went to Wollersheim's residence for comment.

Members of the community are withholding judgement until they see charges against the man who has coached for nearly two decades at Dominican.

The school has placed Wollersheim on paid administrative leave.

Wollersheim is out of jail as of Wednesday, May 30th after posting a $1,000 bond.
