Casper, WY (AP) - Leaders of a Wyoming youth drum corps say they've fired an instructor accused of trying to have sex with a 14-year-old girl in Florida.
Twenty-eight-year-old Ryan Burd of Hilton Head Island, S.C. was arrested Tuesday. He was a drummer and percussionist for the Dallas Brass, which performs around the United States, in addition to working for the Casper-based Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps.
Corps director Fred Morris told the Casper Star-Tribune Burd was terminated on Wednesday.
Morris said Burd most recently worked with Troopers members during a weekend rehearsal late last year. He said he's not aware of any problems between Burd and its members.
Authorities say Burd met the girl at a concert in Gainesville, Fla. and they exchanged messages through Facebook.
Burd is being held on $100,000 bond.
