A former Bethel Park assistant hockey coach pleaded guilty on Tuesday to drug charges and was given six months of probation, according to the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office.

Port Authority police arrested Kenneth Lehmann, 26, on Jan. 16 in the Sheraden park-and-ride lot off the West Busway. The Bethel Park Blackhawks of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League dismissed him from the team after his arrest. The team is not affiliated with the Bethel Park School District.

Lehmann and his attorney, Pat Thomassey, could not be reached for comment.

As Lehmann's first drug possession offense, sentencing guidelines called for six months' probation, DA spokesman Mike Manko said.
