MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) –  Saying his team was upset about losing the Class AA state boys golf tournament on Wednesday by one stroke, a Hermantown High School boys golf assistant coach allegedly bought beer and wine coolers for his underage players hoping to “have a good time.”

Accordingly to the criminal complaint filed in Scott County, Kyle Gordon Ernst, 26, has been charged with purchasing alcohol and giving it to a person under 21 years of age at the Shakopee, Minn., hotel where his players were staying earlier this week for the state golf tournament.

The complaint states that police found Hermantown golf team members at the Cub Foods in Shakopee at 3 a.m. on Thursday trying to buy lottery tickets. Police noticed alcohol on their breath and a breath test confirmed it.

Police took the players back to the hotel where they found Ernst. Ernst then admitted to buying beer and wine coolers for himself and the players on the team.
