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.
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.
