The University of Michigan gymnastics coach who was arrested for having sex with one of his gymnasts in public was punished in court Monday with a fine … TMZ Sports has learned.
39-year-old Scott Vetere was arrested back in October after cops say they caught him and an 18-year-old member of the UM gymnastics team banging in a parking lot near the Ann Arbor campus.
Vetere’s been in court ever since fighting an indecent or obscene conduct in public charge — a misdemeanor that carries a maximum of 90 days in jail if convicted.
But, court officials tell us Scott reached an agreement with prosecutors this week … and got his charge reduced to a civil infraction. He paid off a fine and now the case is closed.
Vetere — a former stud gymnast who was the 2000 BIG 10 Gymnast of the Year — was suspended by UM after the incident last fall. He later resigned from his position and left the school.
We’ve reached out to UM for comment … but so far, no word back yet.
