A Georgia mother and her boyfriend were arrested for allegedly displaying a gun while blocking the path of a traveling elementary school bus holding 20 students.
It was reported that a 33-year-old mother of a child enrolled in a Glynn County elementary school and the school bus driver had an ongoing dispute. The woman requested that the driver stop in front of her home to pick up her child instead of having the youngster go to the designated bus stop. The driver was unable to fulfill her request, and it caused tension between the two.
On February 6, as the bus was passing her home on its way to the stop, the woman and her boyfriend reportedly stood in front of the vehicle and forced the driver to stop. Her boyfriend, who is a convicted felon, allegedly had a gun in his waistband.
The bus was carrying 20 children at the time, and the man allegedly held the firearm while staring at the driver. The man did not aim the gun at the bus.
After a few moments, the mother and her boyfriend moved out of the way, and the bus driver resumed the route.
The Glynn County Sheriff’s Office intervened and located the suspects.
The man was placed under arrest and booked into the Glynn County Detention Center. He is expected to face charges of making terroristic threats, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and disruption of a public school bus, which is a high and aggravated misdemeanor.
The woman was also booked into the county jail, and she is accused of making terroristic threats, making false statements, and disruption of a public school.
It is reported that no one was harmed during the incident.
