A New Jersey girls' softball coach has been arrested for allegedly using a stolen credit card to book hotel rooms for his team.

Andre Harris is a coach and manager for the South Brunswick-based N.J. Thunder softball organization, which fields teams for players aged 13 to 23.

Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey Soriano says a California woman contacted his office in September and said she noticed suspicious charges on her card in Florida over the summer. Soriano says the Thunder team played in a tournament in Orlando during that time.

More than $10,000 was allegedly charged to the card.

Harris faces three counts of credit card fraud and two theft charges.
