Elwood bus driver accused of kissing student
A 73-year-old Elwood school bus driver was arrested Tuesday for allegedly kissing a middle school student on the lips.
Police say Michael Dibella approached the 11-year-old after dropping off all of the other students at home on Nov. 19. Dibella stopped the bus near the girl?s home, police say, and kissed her multiple times.
The Elwood School District says Dibella works for the Huntington Bus Company, had no prior disciplinary incidents in the district and was cleared to work by the state. The statement goes on to say Dibella will no longer work for the district.
Dibella is charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
