PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) —New information tonight in the now felony charge filed against a Pender County high school baseball coach.

Jonathan Granville Gehris was charged with felony assault by strangulation last week. This was an upgraded charge from an arrest last month.

“Please, please help me… I have four children and I’m so afraid,”  said woman identifying herself as his wife made the call.

“What is wrong with you? You back into my car. I have pictures of you hitting my car. I have pictures of you hitting my eye, and you are going to call the police because we’re having an argument?” Gehris can be heard saying on the call.

We’ve received questions from viewers about his employment status. Earlier this month we were told nothing had changed, but no word this afternoon from Pender County Schools.

A request to talk to the superintendent about the coach was denied.
