Dayton, Ohio (WDTN) — Only NBC's Dayton, Ohio affiliate WDTN spoke with the the RTA bus driver who's sticking with his story about being shot by three teens and saved by a bible in his chest pocket.
Wednesday, police announced no charges will be filed after a 4-month investigation found the bus driver's claims unfounded.
"I didn't make this up in anyway, shape or form. And because things happen that they can't explain, they think that I am lying. They're not offering any proof that I am lying," said Rick Wagoner.
In a conference, Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl stated that, "I'm saying that this assault as reported is not true. It's not accurate."
Two versions of a story, after a 4 month investigation.
Chief Richard Biehl says he brought the police department's findings, including Rick Wagoner's own testimony, to prosecutors.
While he wouldn't comment on whether the prosecutors decision was right or wrong, he did back their process.
"I would say their standard for prosecution is proof beyond a reasonable doubt. It is a rather high standard as it should be because we're talking about an individual's freedom here," said Biehl.
