PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A former NBA player and current college coach has been arrested on charges that he exposed his genitals on a public trail in Pennsylvania.

Doug Overton, coach of Division II Lincoln University, was arrested April 30 on charges of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct. He is free on $10,000 bail.

The Delaware County Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/2pvL00I ) several witnesses told police they saw Overton exposing himself on the Cynwyd Trail in Lower Merion Township.

Overton was a standout at La Salle University and played 11 seasons in the NBA for eight teams. He just finished his first season as head coach at Lincoln, in Chester County.

Overton says he’s innocent.

A spokesman for Lincoln University’s athletics department declined to comment.
