BANGOR, Maine — Drivers on the road in Bangor, Maine on Tuesday may have noticed that something looked a little out of place.
Maine residents, John W. St. Germain III and his girlfriend were driving on Tuesday when they noticed that the driver of a big blue school bus looked a little too young to be driving.
Turns out that Germain and his girlfriend were right, because once police showed up, they identified the school bus driver as a 12-year-old boy who thought it would be fun to take the bus for a joy ride by himself.
When police got a description from residents of a "big blue bus with a kid driving," they said they knew exactly what to look for.
In the video which the Bangor Police Department posted to their Facebook page, Germain and his girlfriend are following the 12-year-old as he drives the bus in front of them, and is seen driving up on sidewalks and swerving in the lane.
Then, being a brave citizen, Germain eventually got out of his car and ran up to the swinging bus doors and took control of the bus while the kid was stopped at an intersection. The 12-year-old was then taken into custody when police arrived, and thankfully no one was hurt.
To see the police department's Facebook post and to watch the video see it below. For a 12-year-old he didn't do such a bad job!
