Irate Parent Confronts School Bus Driver

Refuses to Get off Bus and is Driven to Sheriff’s Precinct & Arrested

(Edgewood, MD. – April 24, 2007) — A 28 year-old woman was arrested earlier this morning by Harford County Sheriff’s Office Deputies and charged with disruption of school activities, disorderly conduct and possession of a deadly weapon on school property in connection with a confrontation with a school bus driver that occurred at approximately 08:20 a.m. this morning.

Tennika Nicole White, 28, of the 1700 block of Fountain Rock Way initially confronted her son’s William Paca Elementary School bus driver at the school’s designated bus stop located at Brookside Drive and Fountain Rock Way in Edgewood. A heated argument ensued over White’s son loosing his bus privileges where an irate and loud White allegedly forced her way onto the school bus that had more than a dozen students on board. White was asked to leave the bus several times by the bus driver but refused and continued to yell and disrupt the bus driver’s attempt to continue their route. As a result of White’s refusal to leave the bus the driver dialed 911 and drove approximately a half mile to the Sheriff’s Office Southern Precinct where White was placed under arrest without incident. A search of White following her arrest discovered a folding pocket knife in her pant’s pocket.
