PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A former Boston Celtics player and current college coach has been arrested on charges he exposed himself on a public trail in Pennsylvania.

Doug Overton, coach of Division II Lincoln University, was arrested April 30 on charges of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct. He is free on $10,000 bail.

According to police, several witnesses reported seeing Overton exposing himself to both men and women on the Cynwyd Trail in Lower Merion Township.

Overton says he's innocent. He tells CSNPhilly.com he was relieving himself while walking his dog.

Overton was a standout at La Salle University and played 11 seasons in the NBA for eight teams. He recently finished his first season as head coach at Lincoln, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) west of Philadelphia.

Lincoln University officials had no immediate comment.
