Bus aide who kissed student did not commit crime, police say

Posted on December 9, 2010

BROWNSBURG, Ind. — Police concluded an investigation of alleged inappropriate behavior by a school bus aide. The aide, who was accused of kissing a student on the cheek, did not commit a criminal offense, police say.

Brownsburg School Corp. bus aide Bobby Shrout was seen kissing a girl on the cheek by another female student from the Indiana School for the Deaf. After conducting interviews and reviewing bus surveillance footage, the police determined that Shrout could not be charged and left the matter up to the district, Fox 59 reports.  

Shrout was placed on administrative leave during the investigation, but later resigned. The district has opted to take no further action.
