Surprise, he's not a bus driver

WASHINGTON (AP) - November 9, 2010

But he was wearing a driver's uniform and driving a Washington-area Metrobus.

William Jackson was sentenced yesterday to 18 months probation and ordered to perform 200 hours of community service.

The 19-year-old pleaded guilty to stealing the bus and crashing it into a tree.

He even picked up passengers along the way.

As part of the plea deal, the phony bus driver must undergo counseling.
