KBI declines to investigate alleged Great Bend assault case

KSAL StaffMarch 5, 2016

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation will not take over the investigation of an alleged assault on a bus transporting the Great Bend boys swim team.

Barton County Sheriff Brian Bellendir had asked the KBI to lead the investigation because of jurisdictional questions.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/1VYGQ9g) the KBI on Friday declined, citing an excessive caseload caused by the recent shootings at a Hesston plant that left four dead and 14 injured. The case will be returned to Barton County.

The incident reportedly occurred Feb. 3 as the school bus traveled back to Great Bend from Saline County.

A second alleged incident on the team’s bus was reported Feb. 6. Ellsworth County Sheriff Tracy Ploutz is recommending misdemeanor charges against several members of the swim team in that case.
