Youth Softball Coach Charged With Solicitation Of Minor

CREATED May 14, 2014

CHEATHAM COUNTY, Tenn. - A youth softball coach was arrested after the mother of a 14-year-old girl on his team discovered inappropriate text messages.

Michael Smallwood, who served as a coach in the East Cheatham softball league, was charged with solicitation of a minor.

The girl's mother called police after she found text messages from Smallwood on her daughter's phone. In the messages, investigators said Smallwood asked the teen to sneak out to meet him, said he wanted to kiss her, and asked her for a photo.

He was freed on $5,000 bond.
