A Legacy High School substitute teacher and football coach was arrested in a student-sex case just days after he and his wife made news as parents of the area's first New Year's baby.

Clark County school police Capt. Ken Young said Thursday that 29-year-old Ryan Davis was arrested Wednesday after questioning. He was booked on two counts of sex acts between a school employee and a student, according to Clark County Detention Center jail logs.

Young says police learned this week of allegations that the incidents occurred in the latter part of 2016 off school property with an 18-year-old female student.

Davis was featured with his wife in the Las Vegas Review-Journal after the birth of the couple's second daughter at 12:27 a.m. Sunday at Sunrise Children's Hospital.

Davis teaches and coaches at the North Las Vegas school.

Jail records showed Davis was freed on $100,000 bail from the Clark County jail pending an initial court appearance Friday morning. It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
