CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – The current cheerleading coach for Coastal Carolina University had a brief run in with the law in Conway over the weekend.

The report from Conway Police states that at the time of the arrest on Sunday afternoon, 31-year-old Elizabeth Appenzeller and cheerleading coach for Coastal Carolina University was involved in a break-up with her boyfriend, and was reluctant to see things end.

When police arrived, Appenzeller was reportedly sitting in the bed of her new ex-boyfriend's truck and refusing to get out, not allowing him to leave with his belongings retrieved from her home.

When she finally got out of the truck bed, Appenzeller became loud and began swearing in close proximity to a sports field where games were being played.

The report states she also swore at the officers, and shoved the police officer trying to put her in handcuffs. When she was subdued, Appenzeller admitted to striking her ex-boyfriend in the face before police arrived.

Appenzeller was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center Sunday afternoon for resisting arrest, assault while resisting arrest, public disorderly and criminal domestic violence. Bond has been set at $12,950.

Mona Prufer, spokeswoman at the university confirms that Appenzeller is an employee but could not comment on the arrest.
