Jacob Bevis, who wrestles on the independent circuit as Seth Knight was arrested late Sunday and charged with solicitation of a minor.
According to the arrest warrant Bevis is alleged to have tried to convince a 14-year-old girl to send a nude photo of herself via text message from her cell phone.
Police said Bevis was at his residence in Dyersburg, TN late Sunday when he asked a 14-year-old girl who was visiting to take a naked photo of herself and send it to his cell phone. In exchange for the photo Bevis promised that he and/or another adult would take the girl and her friend to a teen club called Area 51. Police say there was at least one other person present who overheard the alleged conversation.
The girls notified another adult of the exchange between them and Bevis and police were called and an investigation began which resulted in charges being filed.
Bevis was booked in to the Dyer County Jail and had his initial court appearance on Monday. A public defender was assigned to the case and Bevis, who plead not guilty, was released on $7,500 bond while awaiting his next court appearance on April 21, 2014.
The 31-year old Bevis has been involved in professional wrestling for the better part of the last 13 years working mostly in the Mid-South and working limited dates in Tennessee and Kentucky.
