LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is facing a felony charge after police say he was caught with a juvenile girl and allowed her to lie to police about who she was and what she was doing.
According to an arrest report, it happened early Saturday morning, shortly before 3:00. Police say 28-year-old Michael S. Baisch drove to the girl's home on Southerland Farm Road in Prospect, near the corner of Boy Scout Road and U.S. Hwy. 42, and allowed the girl to get in his vehicle.
Police say the girl's parents had no idea what was happening.
When Baisch tried to drive away with the girl in his car, police say they stopped him.
The pair were questioned, and according to the arrest report, Baisch "allowed the juvenile to lie to police about her actions." When police asked the girl how old she was and where she lived, she initially lied, but later told police where she lived.
Police say they also questioned the parents and they were "unaware of their daughter being out of the home and with the above listed subject."
Baisch was the girl's former coach, according to the arrest report.
He was taken into custody and charged with engaging in an unlawful transaction with a minor.
