From the New York Daily News
The head of the famed Brooklyn Steppers marching band – stars of President Obama’s inauguration parade – has been booted on suspicion of having sex with a teen band member, officials said.
Tyrone Brown, 31, told the Daily News in an exclusive interview he is being smeared by “rumors that blew out of proportion.”
The Special Commissioner of Investigation for city schools reported Monday that a 10-month probe concluded Brown “was involved in an inappropriate relationship” with the 17-year-old on a band trip to Bermuda last year.
Brown and the girl, now 18, denied they had sex.
“I never had sexual contact with her,” Brown told The News.
“I could understand how they say ‘inappropriate.’ I am very hands-on with my kids. I am involved in every aspect of their life.”
