New York, May 5 (ANI): The head of the famed Brooklyn Steppers marching band -- a group whose high-profile gigs peaked this year with a spot in President Obama's inauguration, has been bounced for allegedly having sex with a 17-year-old band member.
Although 31-year-old Tyrone Brown admitted to school investigators that his relationship with the girl was inappropriate, he denied rumors that things had turned sexual during a band trip to Bermuda last year.
His estranged wife Kendra Brown, however, told probers that he had confessed to having bedded the girl.
Regardless, investigators told the New York Daily News that they collected enough evidence -- including nearly 3,000 text messages between Brown and the girl in one month, their adjoining hotel rooms in Bermuda, as well as Brown's own admissions that the pair had grown overly close -- to bar him from future work with the Department of Education.
