A former school bus driver in Putnam County was arrested and charged with one count of solicitation of a minor for sex.
Max Wallace, 51, of Baxter, Tennessee, was taken into custody Wednesday.
Authorities obtained a warrant for his arrest after they received information Wallace was exchanging sexually explicit written communications with a 14-year-old female student.
Sexual acts were reportedly also discussed.
Police said the student became acquainted with Wallace while riding the school bus he drove.
He was booked into the Putnam County jail and later released on $50,000 bond. His court date was set for Oct. 20.
The investigation, however, is ongoing. If anyone has information on this case, please contact the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department at 931-528-8484.
