Trainer placed on suspension for inappropriate contact with student

A Westlake High School athletic trainer employed by Lake Charles Memorial Hospital is facing charges of inappropriate conduct with a student.

George Ange was arrested last week by Westlake Police.

Dickerson says Ange was found with a 17-year-old student.

Since his arrest, Ange was charged with five additional counts of prohibited conduct between an educator and a student. The charges are misdemeanors.
