    Goodson has two felony warrants, plus a third warrant for violation of his parole, according to the tweet.

    Dallas ISD tells NBC DFW that Goodson worked as a volunteer girls basketball coach for Wilmer-Hutchins High School before his dismissal this December. School officials say Goodson was regonized by someone not on the team at a tournament in Fort Worth, who tipped off the district about Goodson being a registered sex offender. 

    DISD says Goodson was asked to leave the property at the tournament in Forth Worth but Duncanville Police say he later attempted to gain entry at a DISD campus in December. District officials say Goodson was able to become a volunteer after lying on his application which they say was submitted the summer of 2017.

    A meeting was later held with the Wilmer-Hutchins basketball team players and parents about the incident but no letter or email was sent out at the school. 

    Dallas County court documents allege Goodson entered a girls locker room in December as well. 

    The Duncanvill Police Department asked for information on Goodson's location to be called in to 972-780-5037.
