Dallas County records show McDaniel was charged with solicitation of prostitution.

Celina ISD tells FOX 4 that McDaniel was immediately placed on administrative leave upon hearing of his arrest.

"Mr. McDaniel is no longer with the district," the Celina ISD said in the statement.

In a letter to parents, the district said the matter did not involve Celina ISD students or staff and the incident did not occur in Celina.

In Texas, solicitation of prostitution is a state jail felony. A state jail felony is punishable by up to $10,000 in fines and/or between 180 days and 2 years in jail.
