SURGOINSVILLE (WATE) – A registered sex offender is behind bars after a Hawkins County School Resource Officer caught him during a traffic stop.

Deputies say a Surgoinsville Elementary School SRO saw a truck driven by Scotty Haycraft pull into the parking lot to drop off a child Wednesday morning.

The officer knew Haycraft had a revoked license, so he stopped him.

The SRO then learned Haycraft is a registered sex offender and arrested him on the spot for a parole violation.
