Bus Driver Paid Students $20 To Stick Cucumbers in His Butt
Thomas Smith Jr. a 75-year-old Louisiana bus driver is under arrest after police said he paid several 16-year-olds who live near him and once rode his bus $20 to stick objects, such as cucumbers and sex toys, into his rectum.
Police say Smith, who has been driving buses for 13 years, did not molest the teens, who would come to his house when they needed money, but used them to gratify himself.
Detectives began their investigation Wednesday after receiving a tip from a confidential informant while investigating an unrelated burglary. They searched Smith’s home and recovered several things, including items he is accused of having the teens use to perform sex acts on him. Among those are a belt, a board and vegetables, police said.
Police said Smith, who lived alone, admitted to indecent behavior with the juveniles and to paying adults who needed money for drugs to do the same thing. No charges were filed for acts involving the adults because it was consensual. One of the teens was 14 years old when it first happened, according to police.
Smith told investigators he got the fetish 40 years ago after watching a porn video. That same day, while living in New Orleans, he stopped at a grocery store and bought vegetables to use and has been that way since.
Smith never had been arrested prior to Thursday. He was dishonorably discharged from the military in the 1960s for sodomy.
He's currently in jail on after being unable to meet the $100,000 bond.
