Here is a video report from Atlanta where a "nearly-naked man" hijacked a school bus there yesterday. He had been acting strangely in a convenience store just prior to jumping on a school bus through a window when it stopped and taking over the bus. The bus ran off the road into a ditch, and when the man tried to run away he was caught by nearby lawn crew.
Two children and the bus driver were injured and treated at a local hospital. . . . (Watch Video)

I don’t know all of the facts but that bus driver acted stupily.
He had on jeans and underwear at the store but did I hear correctly the yard man said he had on a condom???

SNIPPET: “The was something very wrong with Arris Pitmon. Moments before he hijacked an Atlanta school bus, he was caught on surveillance video at a nearby gas station acting like, well, a weirdo. Police say he then jumped through a window of the stopped bus, overpowered the female drive, and took control.”

SNIPPET: “ATLANTA - A man who police say hijacked an Atlanta public school bus with about a dozen students aboard has been denied bond at a jailhouse hearing.
Arris Pitmon has been charged with 13 counts of false imprisonment, 13 counts of reckless conduct, four counts of battery and one count of theft by taking an automobile after Thursday’s bizarre incident. A student and the bus driver had only minor injuries.
Investigators believe Pitmon, who is 23, was on cocaine at the time of the incident. Police say a shirtless Pitmon jumped on the bus near a gas station, overpowered the driver and then let the bus careen off the roadway and through a fence.
Pitmon’s appointed attorney, Stanley Constant, did not immediately return a call for comment Monday. Pitmon’s next court appearance is set for Sept. 14.”
