A school bus driver in Indiana is under arrest after students filmed her allowing kids to drive the bus.
Joandrea Dehaven McAtee, 27, was arrested on Friday and charged with felony neglect of a dependent. A person can be charged with neglect of a dependent if a decision “places the dependent in a situation that endangers the dependent’s life or health,” according to Indiana state law.
According to police, McAtee allowed three students — an 11-year-old, 13-year-old and 17-year-old — to drive the school bus for short distances Thursday in rural Valparaiso, Indiana. There were other students on the bus at the time, some of whom recorded the incident.
