    Police in Massachusetts say a school bus driver who left a 5-year-old boy alone on a bus for several hours may face criminal charges.

    Beverly Chief John LeLacheur says he is consulting with the district attorney to determine if charges should be filed. The Salem News reports that police noted 71-year-old driver David Boutros disregarded protocols when he didn't check for children on the bus.

    Boutros could not be reached for comment and has been suspended from his job pending further investigation.

    Redona Hyso said she brought her son, Ian, to the bus stop Friday. Ian told his mother he forgot to get off the bus at his school.
