Emporia gymnastics coach arrested on Nebraska child porn charges

OMAHA, Neb. (KETV) -

Bryce Fogg, a former coach with Omaha's Premier Gymnastics and other gymnastics organizations, was arrested Thursday in Emporia, Kansas, following allegations brought in two police reports suggesting he secretly took photos or video.

The reports filed Thursday, July 6, both allege Fogg, 27, had recorded photographs of a 14-year-old girl and 22-year-old woman in "private compromising positions" in Omaha without their knowledge or consent.

The alleged incidents took place between November 2016 and July 2017.

A felony warrant was issued Thursday for his arrest. Omaha police investigators contacted law enforcement in Emporia, who later located Fogg at his residence and arrested him on the warrant for manufacturing child pornography. He's awaiting extradition to Omaha on the felony and two counts of misdemeanor unlawful intrusion.

Fogg left Premier in April 2017 to take a coaching job with Sunflower Gymnastics in Emporia, Kansas. 

On its Facebook page Thursday, Sunflower posted Fogg had quit.

"Coach Bryce has had to resign his coaching position at Sunflower Gymnastics due to personal reasons. Coach Bryce has brought a lot to Sunflower and we are sad to see him go. However we do fully understand his reasons and wish him all the best in his future endeavors," the post read.

Reached by email Thursday, the head of Sunflower Gymnastics said it had discontinued its relationship with Fogg immediately.

"We already made contact with our governing body, USA Gymnastics, in regards to this report," wrote David Doemland.

Doemland added, "The safety of our athletes is of the utmost importance."
