Stow Police charged a Lakeview Intermediate juvenile with disorderly conduct Feb. 14 because of a "menacing" incident on a school bus, according to Stow-Munroe Falls School District Transportation Director John Daymon.
The case is being hanlded by Stow Youth Services, according to police.
The fifth grade student placed a paper hat on top of a school bus driver's head covering her eyes Feb. 10 while driving about 70 students home on Graham Road after school, said Daymon.
The following day, Feb. 11, a passenger allegedly heard an unknown student on the same bus say to a group of students they were going to "bring a knife on the bus to stab the driver," Daymon said.
The driver was directed to turn the bus around Feb. 11 and go back to the school, while the principal talked to the students. Daymon requested two other bus drivers go to the school to take the kids home and to drive the original driver back to the garage.
The bus driver is not driving the Lakeview route until both the Stow Police Department and the district finishes its investigations, said Daymon.
