A school bus driver, who's accused of holding up a toy gun and telling students it was for "the bad kids," has been charged by police and fired from his job.
Dauphin County Vocational School sophomore Tyler Kelsey was on that bus and said things changed from normal to scary very quickly on Monday's bus ride home.
"I thought everything was going to be as usual then I heard a few students talking about a gun," he said. "He passed my stop at the corner there and just drove right on down to an empty lot."
Students contacted authorities with cell phones as Jones began his route.
"Kids were screaming, texting, calling their parents, calling the police," said Kelsey.
Susquehanna Township Superintendent Susan Kegerie said these students did the right thing.
"They were calm ... They used the[ir] phones. They alerted authorities right away whether it was real or whether it was not," Kegerie said.
