Metro police arrested a former Dickson County teacher and assistant football coach Tuesday morning for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl at his Bellevue apartment.
A grand jury indictment charges Shane Bishop, 25, with six counts of statutory rape by an authority figure and one count of sexual battery by an authority figure for allegedly having sex with the female student at his home last June, according to Metro police.
Police arrested Bishop 8 a.m. Tuesday outside his home at 7221 Highway 70 S. He was in jail Tuesday afternoon and held in lieu of $25,000 bond.
The Dickson County District Attorney’s Office notified Metro of the alleged relationship between Bishop and the girl. Dickson County authorities continue to investigate Bishop, who taught at Dickson County High School before he resigned from that school system on Nov. 28.
