LAKE PLACID, New York (AP) — A figure skating coach who competed at the Olympics for the Soviet Union is being held in Maryland as a fugitive from charges in New York.
Authorities in New York aren't releasing details of the case against 50-year-old Genrich Sretenski except to say it involves an incident last year in Lake Placid, a hub of figure skating training and competition. Police there say they took a complaint involving Sretenski last September.
New York troopers say Sretenski is jailed in Maryland until an extradition hearing Wednesday.
A telephone message left at the Maryland rink where Sretenski teaches hasn't been returned.
Sretenski and ice dancing partner Natalia Annenko placed fourth at the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary.
