JOHNSTON (AP) -

An Iowa school official says a school bus driver accused of hitting a 15-year-old student after the boy apparently refused to heed his seat assignment instructions had worked for the district fewer than three months.

Robert Scarbrough, 60, of West Des Moines, was arrested Thursday after some students left the bus and told a nearby sheriff's deputy about the incident, which was recorded on a cellphone by at least one student.

Scarbrough was hired in early August and underwent a background check and training, Johnston Community School District spokeswoman Laura Sprague said Friday.
