Former Tennessee Highway Patrol Sergeant Daniel Threet turned himself in to Nashville's Justice Center on Saturday morning, after being indicted on charges of patronizing prostitution near a school zone.
Threet, of Cookeville, had been the subject of a Metro Police investigation since early February.
Threet, 45, is alleged to have patronized a prostitute who advertised on the Internet on Stainback Avenue on Jan. 31.
Police say Threet drove to Nashville in a state vehicle and dressed in full uniform for the encounter.
Police learned of the incident during the course of another investigation.
Threet resigned from the Tennessee Highway Patrol shortly after being placed on leave as a result of the investigation.
His bond is set at $1,000.
