Laverne Ardin Doran (68) of the 4100 block of Slater Avenue was arrested Thursday afternoon, October 5, after a road rage incident involving a Baltimore County School Bus.

Doran climbed onto the front of the school bus after the bus driver refused to let him onto the bus. Doran claimed that his vehicle, which was in the lane next to the bus at the intersection of Putty Hill Avenue and Hoerner Avenue in Parkville, was struck by a bottle thrown by a passenger on the school bus and demanded entry onto the bus. The bus driver, fearing for the safety of the students, proceeded to slowly drive toward the nearest police precinct with the man clinging to the front of the bus, slamming his fist onto the hood of the bus. When the bus stopped for a traffic light Doran got down and again attempted to gain entry onto the bus, breaking a handle off of the doors. An off-duty police officer saw the commotion and intervened.

Doran was arrested at the scene and charged with Disturbing the Peace/Hindering Passage, Disorderly Conduct, Obstructing a School Bus Driver, and Destruction of Property. He was released from commitment on his own recognizance.

The school bus was transporting students from Loch Raven Middle School at the time of the incident. At no time were the students put in danger. The incident was caught on a student's cell phone camera and distributed independently.

The circumstances surrounding this incident continue to be investigated.
