Wake County school bus driver accused of sex crimes

A Wake County school bus driver was arrested Wednesday night on a charge of asking a 14-year-old female student at Leesville Road High School to let him take nude pictures of her, according to an arrest warrant.

Police arrested John Felix Clemons, 64, at his home on Tipperary Drive and charged him with one count each of taking indecent liberties with a child and second-degree sexual exploitation of a child.

Police said the incident happened Tuesday and involved a student on a bus Clemons drove. He resigned Wednesday before he was arrested, said schools spokeswoman Lisa Luten.
