Arnette Harrington: Sex offender driving students arrested on suspended license

GULFPORT, Fla. (AP) -- Police have arrested a registered sex offender who they say was driving 14 students to school.

The Gulfport Police Department says 57-year-old Arnette Harrington was charged with driving a school van on a suspended or revoked license Monday morning. Police also confiscated an illegal license plate that was on the vehicle.

Officials say Harrington does not have restrictions that would prohibit contact with children. Police say there is no indication of any inappropriate conduct with children.

Authorities say Harrington is a private driver who transports students to and from school.

Following the arrest, parents were notified and alternate transportation arrangements were made.

Harrington's license is not valid due to multiple suspensions for DUI charges. It is not immediately clear if he has an attorney.
