A youth soccer coach in Frisco charged with four counts of sexually abusing children threatened to jump from the High Five Monday afternoon, forcing police to close the flyover ramp from southbound Central Expressway onto eastbound LBJ Freeway.

Kevin Hilty, 42, was arrested last Thursday in a Frisco child sex abuse investigation. He was charged with four counts of Continuous Sexual Abuse of a child under 14 in Denton County. Investigators say he came in contact with the victims while working as a coach for a private soccer organization.

Hilty coached for the boys U12 team for the Frisco Soccer Association.

He posted a $1,000,000 bond and was released Saturday. Police say more charges are possible in the sexual abuse investigation.

Police sources say Hilty, a husband and father, was distraught Monday over the accusations against him and threatening to take his life.

"I'm in a state of a shock right now," said Hilty's neighbor, Alia Gaffar. "Just the guy next door -- regular guy next door, getting the mail, picking up his kids, dropping them off."

The incident began at about 2 p.m. and ended with Hilty's surrender to SWAT officers at about 5:40 p.m. He was taken to Medical City Dallas for an evaluation.

News 8 reached out to the soccer organization for comment, but received no response Monday.
