CHEATHAM COUNTY, Tenn. -

A softball coach has been arrested for sending inappropriate texts to a 14-year-old girl on his team.

Michael Smallwood, who coaches for the East Cheatham softball league, has been charged with solicitation of a minor to commit statutory rape.

The family of the victim contacted authorities after the teen’s mother found text messages from Smallwood on her daughter's phone.

According to an affidavit, the messages suggested the teen sneak out of the house so the two can meet. There were also messages suggesting they have intercourse and exchange pictures.

Smallwood is behind bars on $5,000 bond.
