LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles man who placed prank calls about job openings for prominent professional coaches has been released from jail.

Kenneth Tarr was released on $20,000 bail Tuesday, according to Los Angeles County sheriff's booking records. His next court date is set for Dec. 31.

The 32-year-old Hollywood man was arrested a day earlier and booked on suspicion of felony eavesdropping for recording phone conversations without the consent of the people on the calls, which is illegal in California.

The case had yet to reach the district attorney's office Tuesday.

Los Angeles police said their two-month investigation includes coaches from across pro sports.
