Trolley driver said black men stabbed and shot him, but he was lying

Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl has said that an RTA bus driver who claimed that three black teenagers shot and stabbed him is lying.

Biehl said that key elements of Rickey Wagner’s story could not have occurred as he had described them, leading to a deeper investigation into the situation.

On a release on the Dayton Regional Transportation Authority’s website, RTA Executive Director Mark Donaghy said that Wagoner has been accused as part of the employee disciplinary process with violations of RTA’s Employee Standards of Performance, and remained on paid administrative leave.

In the incident that occurred on February 24th, Wagoner, 49, told police that he had been shot and stabbed while he was investigating his electric-powered trolley’s sudden loss of power. An audio/video recording showed that he had only 22 seconds to disarm two of the assailants, stab one of them with his penknife, fire at them with the bullets that were left in the handgun (which he said he had snatched from one of the assailants) and then race about 200 – 300 feet to get back on his bus.

Biehl said that Wagoner then radioed the dispatcher but appeared to be calm and composed, not what you would expect from a man who’d just been fighting for his life. Wagoner also claimed that a religious book had stopped two bullets that had been fired at him – something that Biehl said was not credible without the bullets penetrating his torso.

Donaghy said, “After conducting a comprehensive investigation that has spanned nearly four months, the police department has concluded Mr. Wagoner fabricated his statements. All of us at RTA are angry at the thought that an employee would allegedly mislead the police, the public and us and use ugly racial stereotypes in doing so.”

As for motives, Biehl said that Wagoner seemed to be in a financial mess and that he owed Montgomery County in excess of $100,000 in property taxes for a dozen homes he owns, including his residence. He may have had plans to file a lawsuit against the city to pay his debts.

  1. The only reason that white people have historically done this is because it has worked. I can only imagine how many innocent people of color are serving time or dead because of a white lie.

  2. It's One of the oldest tricks in the book. You see a lot of Cartoon comedy's parody this type of action, But this is very serious Most recently was a case in Perugia, Italy, where a US citizen Amanda Knox, stood accused of Murdering her Flatmate Meredith Kercher from the UK. In her statements to police, she blamed the crime on her former Boss, a Black Man who employed her as a Bartender. He was immediately arrested, and had it not been for the fact he had 200 witnesses to confirm his whereabouts, (customers from his Club), he would be in prison today, protesting his innocence. Yes, i'm afraid " The Black Guy Did it" way out of a problem, is ubiquitous in many countries. It may well be some years before this changes. I and many other will do our best to try to change this. Peace

  3. And concerning that Amanda Knox bitch, Oprah had that racists family on her show and was so sympathetic toward them, even being instrumental in freeing that ugly cracka lesbo!!!

  4. Another outrageous lie by a white man. This is something so terrible to do to our race. It has happened numerous times – blame the black man so it can be an excuse to kill him. God help us in this country – what is it coming too – that so many blacks are being discriminated against? All we can do is be extra careful and pray for protection – it has gotten worse than ever – STOP BLAMING BLACKS FOR EVERYTHING GONE WRONG – THERe ARE LOTS OF GEORGE ZIMMERMANS OUT THERE – THEY WANT TO KILL US ALL EXTINGUISH OUR RACE OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH!!


  6. Olivia you are right about Amanda Knox – I always thought she was guilty – bottom line is She got away with murder!!!!

  7. Re: Amanda Knox case: black man (Sudanese) currently serving time for this case.
