    A D.C. Metrobus driver is accused of trying to solicit sex while on duty early Saturday morning.

    The alleged incident happened at about 12:15 a.m. along Southern Avenue near 9th Street in Southeast.

    Shawn Todd was driving his usual route when he propositioned someone who turned out to be an undercover officer, according to police.  A source told the Washington Examiner that the driver apparently offered the officer $10 in exchange for sexual favors.

    Todd was taken into custody and arrested on solicitation charges, Metro Transit spokesperson Cathy Asato said.

    It’s not clear whether any passengers were on board the bus at the time.

    The arrest was the second involving a Metrobus driving within just 12 hours.  Metrobus driver Dwayne Adamson is accused of flashing a knife at the driver of a car during the evening rush hour Friday.  Prosecutors are not pressing charges against Adamson in that incident.

    WMATA is conducting its own investigation against both drivers.
