RTA Bus Driver Fired Following Police, RTA Investigations
DAYTON -- The Greater Dayton RTA has fired bus driver Rickey Wagoner.
Wagoner's claims he was shot while on the job, and a religious book saved his life, were determined to be false by the Dayton Police Department.
Wagoner was fired Friday morning following an internal RTA investigation.
Mark Donaghy, executive director of the RTA, says Wagoner and his union representative were given several chances to present evidence to dispute the allegations against him.
Those allegations include Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl's report on the police investigation that found several inconsistencies in Wagoner's claims he was shot Feb. 24 by three black teens or young men. Chief Biehl says the book Wagoner credits for saving his life would not have been effective in stopping the bullets used.
Donaghy says Wagoner and his union rep were not able to present evidence to do counter police claims.
Donaghy said he's "angry and appalled" that Wagoner misled the community and made up the story about a racially motivated attack.
"That's not consistent with the core values of the RTA," Donaghy said. "And today's actions show that to be the case."
Derrick Foward of the Dayton Unit of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) said today's firing of Wagoner was the right call.
Some justice has been served by Wagoner's termination, Foward said, but there won't be full justice until charges are filed against the former RTA bus driver.
Forward said he spoke with the state Attorney General's office and urged them to investigate. However, the AG's office won't get involved unless local agencies request it.
