Bus driver charged with egging on snowball attack

By  | 

A school bus driver has been charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor after she allegedly offered students cash to throw snowballs at a 13-year-old boy. The woman was arrested Wednesday.

According to police, the 34-year-old woman interjected herself into a verbal tussle between two students. Police said the driver got on the bus' PA system and offered varying amounts of money to students to either throw snowballs at the 13-year-old or stuff snow down his shirt.

Several students did throw snowballs at the boy, who was not seriously injured.

The school system said the driver has been suspended from duty and was on paid leave.
