Police claim he asked how much for her services; even saying he wanted oral sex and offered to pay $20.
That's when officers moved in and arrestsed Butts.
Butts has taught computer classes to adults at Dunbar Community School for the last three years.
"That is not what he represents in my opinion," said Dunbar Community School principal Charles Dailey,
