A Hermantown High School assistant golf coach faces a gross misdemeanor charge for allegedly providing beer and wine coolers to some of the team’s players following the state high school golf tournament in Jordan recently. 26-year-old Kyle Ernst faces one count of furnishing alcohol to someone under 21. He was booked into the Scott County Jail and released on Thursday. Ernst reportedly told police that members of the golf team were upset about losing the state tournament by one stroke and he admitted going to a store and purchasing wine coolers and beer for them while they were staying in Shakopee.
