ODESSA - The men's gymnastics coach at Permian High School has resigned after he was arrested back in July.

29-year-old Charles Ellis formally ended his contract with E.C.I.S.D. on Thursday.

On July 30, Ellis was arrested in midland and charged with possession of marijuana.

He was found in his car with his hazards flashing and the alarm going off.

Officers found a pipe and the marijuana sitting on the console.

Ellis also told officers he'd been drinking.

No court dates have been set.

Ellis had only been with E.C.I.S.D. for a year.
