‘Unruly kids’ sideline bus

Some Manatee County school district children arrived home on Anna Maria Island later than usual Nov. 18 after a bus driver pulled over and called police to report “unruly children” aboard.

The bus driver, after traveling across the Palma Sola Causeway to the Island, pulled over on Manatee Avenue near Fifth Avenue in Holmes Beach and called the Holmes Beach Police Department.

HBPD reported that “the children were being very loud and yelling” at the substitute driver, who had missed a stop along the route. The driver told police there was a child trying to assist her with the bus route, but he could not be heard over the noise.

An HBPD officer told the King Middle School students that “yelling would not get them home any faster,” quieted the passengers and then helped the driver return to the missed stop.
