MANCHESTER, Connecticut — A high school varsity girls soccer coach tells police he intended to send a video to his girlfriend, but mistakenly sent it to the players.

The Journal Inquirer of Manchester reports (http://bit.ly/1vgVJZh ) that Jeffrey M. Sirois at E.O. Smith High School was arrested earlier this month on charges of risk of injury to a child, breach of peace and obscenity.

The arrest warrant says the 57-year-old Sirois of Lebanon intended to send the video to his girlfriend, but accidentally sent it to a Snapchat group of his soccer players who are juveniles.

Five players attending the high school in Storrs said they viewed the video.

Sirois is free on a $100,000 bond and is due back in Vernon Superior Court Oct. 28.

It was not known Thursday morning if he's represented by a lawyer.
