Man charged in Parkville school bus disturbance

Baltimore County man is caught on tape jumping onto the front of a school bus full of children and demanding the driver let him on board. The bus was transporting middle school students, and the driver told officials he was anxious about their safety.

The bus was transporting students from Loch Raven Academy, Baltimore County Public Schools confirmed with WBAL-TV (11 News). This allegedly prompted Doran to exit his vehicle and approach the bus.

One of the students on that bus shot this video on their cell phone of a man seen clinging to the front of the moving bus.

Bylen says Doran started banging on the bus door and tried to get inside.

A man who thought students threw a plastic bottle at his vehicle was so angry he attempted to climb on the bonnet of a moving school bus to berate them.

The statement says the driver headed slowly to a police precinct for assistance.

The driver jumped out and demanded the bus driver open the door. Luckily, an off-duty police officer was nearby and able to intervene quickly.

Police arrested Leverne Doran of Nottingham, Md. without incident. They are investigating whether anything was thrown out of the bus.

The man was arrested near the scene and faces charges of disorderly conduct and destruction of property after causing damage to the bus.

Police said that at no time were the children in danger. They say not to confront another driver.
