BOULDER, Colo. — A former Boulder swim coach is accused of inappropriate sexual contact with underage swimmers when he worked for a club team 20 years ago, authorities said on Monday.

Jon Michael Beber was arrested Thursday in Atlanta on suspicion of three counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust and was awaiting extradition to Colorado, according to the Boulder County District Attorney's Office.

Beber was being held in the Fulton County, Georgia, jail for the Boulder County Sheriff's Office, according to jail records.

Beber was a swim coach in Boulder from 1997 to 2002. He left when allegations against him first surfaced. He has also coached swim teams in Atlanta, Florida and Albany, N.Y., the DA's Office said in a news release.

People who might have information related to the investigation can contact DA's Office Investigator Kristin Weisbach at 303-441-3811 or kweisbach@bouldercounty.org.

To make an anonymous tip, contact Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 970-669-6113 or nococrimestoppers.com.
