Allegations of Relationship Between Alice Bus Driver, Student

Posted: Updated:
ALICE (Kiii News) -

Officials in Alice are investigating allegations that a bus driver with the Alice Independent School District had an inappropriate relationship with a high school student.

The allegations were brought to light by a relative of the female student. At this point, very little additional information is being released.

"Right now we are just looking into it. Investigating it. We don't have any facts saying it did or didn't happen," Alice Police Chief Randy Weems said. "We don't have a lot of details on the specifics. It appears that the allegations are some things happened in the city. Some things happened in the county. So we are working with the Jim Wells County Sheriff's Office to see if we can get to the bottom of it."

Investigators are currently serving subpoenas to various parties in the case. The school district is said to be aware of the allegations and is monitoring the situation closely.
