HARLEM — A high school softball coach has been arrested for having sex with a 16-year-old student.

Melissa Chase, 28, who also taught at Harlem High School, was arrested Monday, Columbia County Sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said.

Chase was charged with sexual assault against a student enrolled in school, which is a felony, Morris said.

The alleged sexual encounter between Chase and the female student took place this month at the school, Morris said. Morris would not say if the girl played on the team Chase coached.

Chase resigned Monday from her job at the school, Columbia County school Superintendent Tommy Price said in a statement.
