St. John's Jesuit coach appears in court on charges of operating while intoxicated


Venerable St. John's Jesuit basketball coach Ed Heintschel is scheduled to appear in a Maumee courtroom Tuesday on charges from November that he operated a vehicle while intoxicated.

Heintschel, who notched his 600th career win last month, was pulled over on Nov. 26 for not using his turn signal and almost hitting another vehicle, according to the arrest report. Heintschel, 62, later registered a .140 blood alcohol content, nearly twice the legal limit in Ohio.

Heintschel admitted to the arresting officer he had consumed two Manhattan drinks.

St. John's (15-3 overall and 9-1 in the Three Rivers Athletic Conference) will play St. Francis tonight.
