Bus driver's story that book blocked bullets in gang attack doesn't hold water, police say

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 7:19 PM EDT

Police in Ohio say a white bus driver's story that a religious book in his shirt pocket blocked bullets as he was attacked by three black men isn't supported by evidence and testing.

Rickey Wagoner had told police he was outside his Dayton city bus in February when the men assaulted him. He told police that two bullets hit a book containing Bible verses and that one hit his leg and that he was stabbed in the arm.

The case was investigated as a possible hate crime.

Police did not say Wagoner made up the story and didn't explain why he would have made the report. They did say it appeared he owed on back taxes.

No criminal charges have been filed. The Dayton transit agency says it has charged Wagoner with violating employee standards.

A recording at a listing for Wagoner said the voice mail was full.
