    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Des Moines officers have concluded no charges are warranted against a school bus driver accused of shoving students and yelling at them during their ride home.

    A group of parents whose kids attend South Union Elementary School filed a police report that said the driver physically assaulted several students on Monday afternoon and used profanities when addressing the children and their parents.

    The parents also contacted district officials and asked that the driver be fired. District officials said they investigated the incident and found no merit to the parents' allegations.

    Police Sgt. Jason Halifax told The Des Moines Register on Wednesday that detectives made their determination after reviewing a security video from the bus.
