SALISBURY, NC (AP) -- More charges have been filed against a Rowan County middle school football coach accused of assaulting a student, coach and a parent. Forty-year-old Jared John Gallagher of Kannapolis has now been charged with kidnapping, strangulation, interfering with emergency communication and carrying a concealed weapon. Gallagher was an assistant coach at Corriher-Lipe Middle School in Landis. He has been suspended. Gallagher originally was charged with child abuse, possession of a weapon at school, assault and resisting arrest. Sheriff's deputies responding to the head coach's call to the school last week used a Taser three times to subdue Gallagher. He had worked at the school since 2009.
