Little League coach accused of using team to commit burglary

ARLINGTON, Wash. - An Arlington, Washington Little League coach is accused of using some of his players, including his own son and nephew, to help in a break-in.

Snohomish County prosecutors charged 31-year-old George Spady Jr. on Monday with second-degree burglary.

Court documents say he took his son, a nephew and another player from the team when he broke into a vacant Arlington shop and took overhead lights and some bolts.

Spady's family says he's a good man and that police have it all wrong.

"It's frustrating. Very frustrating," said George's wife, Cami. She's anxious to clear her husband's name.

"They're wrong. They're false and we have a lawyer and so we are going to be pursuing it that way," said Cami.

The building has garbage everywhere inside and there's signs in the windows that say "No trespassing" and "Keep out," but George claims he didn't see them.

According to court documents, George's son was the first to go in through a vent behind the building. He then unlocked the door and let the others in.

Little League coach George Spady, Jr. is charged with second-degree burglary. Police say he had some of his players help him break into an abandoned shop to steal items.

Charging papers indicate the boys were encouraged to steal items.
The other player who was with George told his dad, who then told police.

George admits he had a lapse in judgment, but that they were four-wheeling in the area and figured the place was abandoned.
"It's been blown out of proportion," said Cami.

George also claims the front door was unlocked. He and his family say it's no excuse for what happened, but they don't think it warrants criminal charges.

Cami Spady says the timing couldn't be worse.

"We just buried his dad? this week," said Cami, fighting back tears.

George Spady has two prior misdemeanor convictions.

The Little League did not return calls to KING 5 News for comment. Spady did not coach his team in a game Tuesday night.

The boys are not expected to be charged in the case
