KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 25 (UPI) -- A Tennessee school bus driver accused of stealing and selling a school bus is no longer approved to drive for the school district, officials said.

The Knoxville Police Department said Hillman Greenlee, 61, of Knoxville, Tenn., was arrested on a theft charge after he allegedly took Bus 117, a 1998 Blue Ribbon Coach Bus, from a bus lot Wednesday and sold it to another person for $1,200, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported Monday.

The bus, which police valued at about $2,000, was found abandoned later Wednesday.

Knox County Schools spokeswoman Melissa Ogden said Greenlee, a driver with contractor Horace Blakely, is no longer approved to drive for the school district.
