OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. - WFTV reporter Racquel Asa spoke with the driver, Aaron Clements, on the phone. Clements said he didn't know the teens were minors.

Authorities said inside Clements'  cab, they found alcohol, marijuana, a smoking pipe and pornographic DVDs.

A still picture taken from the cab's video camera shows Clements sitting  back, smoking.

Deputies said his time with the teens was caught on video, but the sheriff's office only released still photos.

"Did you think that was OK?" Asa asked.

"Umm, like I said, I thought they were older. I didn't know they were minors. If I knew they weren't older, I wouldn't have done it," said Clements.

"But you were in a company vehicle?" Asa said.

"Correct. I understand that was probably not the brightest of ideas," said Clements.

It was dark and early in the morning when deputies said they found Clements, and the park was closed. The deputy thought the taxi looked out of place and drove into the park.

According to the report, one of teenagers said Clements wanted the three of them to have sex.

"I come from a very Christian background, and I wouldn't even have sex with men or definitely not minors," Clements said.

"Is there any concern there may be more incidents out there?" Asa asked authorities.

"We don't have information that there have been more incidents than Clements with these particular juveniles, we are trying to reach out the public to see if he's done this with others as well," said Twis Lizasuain of the Osceola County Sheriff's Office.

Clements told WFTV he had only met one of the minors, a 15-year-old boy, once before.

Deputies said Clements was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and marijuana charges.
