Dismissed! Court drops lawsuit against fired New Berlin West basketball coach Christopher Foley
WAUKESHA COUNTY (WITI) — A case involving a restraining order filed against a former New Berlin West High School boys basketball coach has been dismissed.
The restraining order was filed against Christopher Foley by a female co-worker who claimed Foley sent her multiple questionable text messages, and that he stalked her.
Foley was fired after the was arrested for possession of marijuana. He was arrested on February 6th after a game. After a short administrative leave, district leaders terminated Foley’s employment. He also worked as a special education assistant at the school.
In the case involving the restraining order, a female teacher’s aide says Foley bombarded her with text messages and emails — wanting to start a romantic relationship with her.
According to court documents, it began in November when Foley allegedly followed her to a bar. A month later, the woman says Foley sent her text messages — one reading “you need to love me.” Another claimed Foley’s love could “fix her.”
The woman blocked Foley’s number and emails, but then in January, Foley allegedly showed up outside the woman’s house. The woman unblocked Foley after his marijuana arrest to see if he would be at work on February 9th.
Foley responded, saying: “Why were you out with creepy, nasty (man) last night downtown” and sent her emails to her school district email account.
“I will never unblock you,” the woman later wrote back. “If you ever contact me again on my work email, I will report you. Leave me alone.”
The court documents show she felt so harassed she decided to seek a restraining order.
The victim’s attorney released this statement to FOX6 News:
“Regrettably, Mr. Foley scared my client with his obsessive behavior, and failed to heed my client’s demand that he stop contacting her.”
Court records show neither Foley nor the female co-worker showed up in court, so the case was dismissed.
In the possession of marijuana case, Foley is set to be back in court on March 30th.
