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.

You need to just pack this up and get on with life. You can't expect to be considered credible by telling parts of the story-the parts that support your claim.
You can not assault a police officer for any reason as the validity of the warrant is not his or her concern. The officers testimony clearly shows that the defendant grabbed his crotch and twisted in order to produce pain-this was sworn by 2 different witnesses.
The defendant should consider herself lucky as Judge Robinson treated her better than she more than likely deserved.
Also, conveniently not mentioning the DUI arrest shows deception, and terms like "would be willing to settle" show the real motivating factor is financial

Wait a "gosh darn" minuet here. Isn't this is the way it works! Gladiator Jock "phootball" Hero / Gods and the "Suzie Cream-cheeze cheerleader types" rewarding the "macho man" with his well deserved sexual rewards? Saying "It ain't so", won't make it go away"!
