Former Brevard County youth basketball coach arrested

Brevard County deputies say that a basketball coach who was wanted for child molestation has been arrested while trying to escape to Mexico. 

51-year-old David White was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Texas on Friday. Investigators say he coached with the Palm Bay youth basketball league.  

Detectives say that he engaged in inappropriate activities with a child during a sleepover at his home in Malabar. White would frequently host sleepovers for his team members and friends of his own children. 

He is being held in a Texas jail on $75,000 bond.  He is awaiting extradition back to Brevard County. Investigators believe there may be more victims.
