NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- (WZTV) -- Johnthony Walker, the Chattanooga school bus driver convicted in a crash that killed six kids, was arrested in Nashville on Thursday.

Walker was arrested for aggravated statutory rape and is being held on $350,000 bond. He's accused of having sex with a 14-year-old at a local home he was staying in.

Walker was recently found guilty of criminally negligent homicide for a bus crash that killed six children in Chattanooga in 2016.

On Monday, Hamilton County Criminal Court Judge Don Poole denied an attorney's motion to reduce Walker's four-year sentence in the deadly accident that killed six Woodmore Elementary students. Efforts were made to revoke Walker's bond, but a judge refused to rule on that motion.

He was convicted on March 1 and has been out on bond, including the time of his Nashville arrest, since October.

Walker is set to appear in Davidson County court on Monday, June 18.
