Wake school bus driver arrested on charge involving 14-year-old Leesville High student

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, an arrest warrant stated.

Police arrested John Felix Clemons, 64, at his home at 4421 Tipperary Drive, records show.

He was charged with one count each of taking indecent liberties with a child and second-degree sexual exploitation of a child and was held in lieu of $80,000 bail for a Thursday court appearance.

Police said the incident, which involved a student on a bus Clemons drove, happened Tuesday.

Lisa Luten, the school system’s communications director, said Clemons resigned his $12.18-an-hour job Wednesday before he was arrested.

Clemons had been driving for the school district since August 2010, Luten said.
