Jackson County District Attorney announced on Thursday that there will be no criminal charges filed against the Greyhound driver in the death of Hunter Maxwell Brown.

"There were insufficient evidence to support proof beyond reasonable doubt that Arthur Lamarris Coley, the driver of the vehicle that struck Mr. Brown and caused his death, acted in a reckless or criminally negligent manner," according to a statement by the Jackson County District Attorney's Office.

It was determined that Coley was not intoxicated, distracted, or speeding at the time of the incident.

The incident happened on June 29th at approximately 1:30 a.m. at the Pilot Truck Stop in Central Point. Witnesses had told police that Coley was in a bad mood and was enforcing all the rules on the bus and had kicked off a group of passengers for smoking marijuana on the bus.

Passengers on the bus said that Coley had left a few minutes after honking the horn several times to warn passengers that it was time to leave.

Passengers told nearby employees the Brown was yelling and banging on the bus as he was chasing it, but tripped.

That is when the wheels of the bus rolled over him.

Brown died on scene from his injuries.
