    EMHS walk-on coach faces weapons charges

    Walk-on football Coach arrested in Sunday's El Modena High School gun incident

    The Orange Police Department reported today that Michael Snitzler, a 26 year-old walk-on-coach for Orange Unified's El Modena High School, was arrested and charged with possession of a gun and ammunition on a school campus. 

    The weapons charges stem from a 10 hour stand-off with police on Sunday April 23, 2017 at El Modena H.S.  Reportedly, Snitzler's brother contacted police by telephone to report his brother was at El Modena and was suicidal.

    Snitzler worked as a part-time football coach at El Modena for the 2011-2016 football seasons.  This spring he was a volunteer with the school's video replay department.

    Snitzler, a Santa Ana resident,  played varsity football in high school for Servite High School. He graduated high school in 2008.

    After Snitzler surrendered without further incident after the 10-hour standoff, El Modena Principal Dr. Dustin Saxon put out a statement on the district website and social media that the school would be open the next day for classes. On Monday, April 24, El Modena High School was open and classes proceeded normally. 

    Orange Unified Superintendent Michael Christensen released a brief statement on Monday April 24th before the weapons charges were announced thanking the Orange Police Department and writing:
    "It is our understanding that the person involved in the incident is receiving the appropriate professional assistance."
