Driver Locks Students on School Bus Until Police are Called
A Dysart School District bus driver in El Mirage, Arizona has resigned after being put on administrative leave following an incident where he refused to allow students to leave the bus.
Parents were forced to call police in order to free their children from the bus driver's punishment for the children's "unruly behavior."
"See, your parents are getting upset. You break that door; you're going to be buying a new one! Your kid will get off the bus when I am done with 'em," said the driver.
"Let the kids off the bus," replied the parent.
"I'm not letting anyone off until you listen to what I have to say," said the driver.
Some of the kids, especially the little ones started to get upset, crying and asking for their parents.
"Please get us out, help us, help!" said one of the children.
"I want my daddy; I want my daddy," said another child.
As the situation escalated, the driver decided to take off, and the bus went into chaos.
"Step away from the bus," said the driver to a parent.
