12-Year-Old Boy Takes School Bus On Joy Ride

A very bold 12-year-old Florida boy drove a school bus a whopping 14 miles without incident and only got caught after people noticed he was having a hard time parking.

News Herald reports:

Deputies have arrested a 12-year-old boy after an early morning joy ride across the county in a school bus.

Employees of the Wal-Mart at 10270 Front Beach Road notified a Bay County deputy of a school bus awkwardly maneuvering through the parking lot at about 5 a.m. Tuesday, according to a news release. Though not causing a safety concern, it seemed strange the driver could not quite figure out how to park.

“It was just odd the way they were driving it,” said Roy Hoover, a Wal-Mart employee. “He was having a hard time parking it, like he’d never drove one before.”

When the deputy pulled behind bus 746 with his emergency lights on, young driver Michael Wade Propst stepped out. He initially said a man named “ Constantine ” asked him to get gas for the bus.

Deputies later discovered the school bus had been taken overnight from a residence at 508 Maine Ave. in Parker, and driven nearly flawlessly across Bay County to the Front Beach Road Wal-Mart. The actual bus driver apparently had left the keys in the bus, and Propst admitted to taking it by himself, police reports stated. The child’s motive is unknown.

No disciplinary action was taken against the bus driver Tuesday, but Superintendent of Schools Bill Husfelt said he plans to meet with the bus driver today.

Good thing nobody got hurt….he probably got AWL the whoopings when he got home.
