Police arrested a convicted sex offender Monday after officers say they saw him in the passenger seat of an ice cream truck in East Nashville.
Larry Lawrence Frierson registered as a violent sex offender in 2006 after he was convicted of two counts of attempted aggravated sexual battery of a 4-year-old boy. Officers monitoring Frierson earlier this month saw him in a green and blue van selling ice cream, according to his arrest warrant.
