Disorderly or indecent conduct, Country Lane MHP, Ludowici

A county bus driver informed deputies that while she was unloading students at the Country Lane bus stop, a man approached the bus door to ask her about a student who rides on the bus. She said the man did not identify himself by name but said he was the uncle of a Long County High School student. Although he was asked to step away from the bus he continued to argue with the driver and blocked the students from getting off the bus. When he finally moved away, he got into a car and drove the car within six-feet of the passenger side of the bus. The driver told deputies he suddenly stepped on the gas, spinning his wheels and pulled away at an excessive speed. All of the disruption was recorded on the bus’ videotape, which was reviewed by the deputies.
