A Northern Michigan school bus driver is accused of having sex with a student.

Police arrested the Prescott man in Ogemaw County.

He is suspended on unpaid leave.

James Matthews worked as a bus driver for the Whittemore-Prescott Area Schools.

The school district says it is fully cooperating with the State Police investigation and that nothing occurred on school property.
