A Maryland man was arrested last week after he was seen in a stunning video clinging to the front of a moving school bus after a student allegedly threw a bottle out a window, officials said.
Baltimore County Police told FOX 45 Baltimore that Leverne Doran, 68, was arrested Thursday after the attempt to stop the bus.
After a student reportedly threw the bottle, police said Doran banged on the doors, and attempted to get inside the bus. The driver would not open the door, he said, because he was in fear for the safety of the students on the bus.
After Doran was unable to get into the bus, police said he then went to the front of the bus and jumped on the hood as it moved forward — an act captured on video by someone inside the bus.
The bus driver proceeded slowly towards a nearby police precinct, officials said.
"We happened to have an off-duty officer who was present in the area who assisted and intervened quickly. He came over, separated all of the parties, and at that time, the suspect was arrested on scene without incident," Baltimore County police Sgt. Andrea Bylen told WBAL-TV.
Police said at no time were children on the bus in danger, and officials are investigating to determine whether any objects were thrown out of the bus.
Doran is facing charges that include destruction of property and disturbing the peace.
