FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - A former school bus driver in Fairfax County has been charged with assault and battery for allegedly touching a 13-year-old special-needs student inappropriately while buckling her into her seat.

Police say the incident occurred in May. Fairfax County Public Schools investigated and then turned the case over to police, who filed charges against 66-year-old Johnnie Miller of Fredericksburg. Miller drove a bus in the Lorton area for the Key Center, a special education school in Springfield.

According to a search warrant affidavit, a videotape showed the girl shouting at Miller as the touching occurred, with Miller yanking his hand away as an attendant came to see what was happening.

According to the warrant, Miller told school officials he was engaging in a tickle game with the girl.
