Pants-down driver charged

The crackdown on speeders is only in its first week, but Lambton OPP have already caught one man with his pants down — literally.

A 25-year-old Wallaceburg man is charged with careless driving after he was stopped for speeding Wednesday night and was found with his pants around his ankles, police said.

His vehicle was heading west on Petrolia Line in St. Clair Township, going 37 kilometres an hour over the limit.

Police said the man told them he was trying to pull his pants on because he was running late for work.

Police: Child takes bus, leads chase

The Associated Press

A 10-year-old boy took a school bus and led police on a chase along a rural highway, according to police.School officials had spotted lights coming from the bus yard around 11 p.m. Friday night, and reported the bus stolen. Officers from three counties, four towns and Arkansas State Police began chasing the bus and its driver.

Despite road spikes set up to slow the bus, the bus kept traveling north toward Little Rock along U.S. 65 through Desha and Lincoln counties, then into the next county of Jefferson.

“Be advised, he missed them all. We’re now coming into town. Speed’s at 25 miles an hour,” officers said over a radio scanner.

About 44 miles later, the bus slowed down enough for a sheriff’s deputy to make the stop in Pine Bluff, and officers discovered their suspect was a child.

They cuffed the boy and took him into custody, then later released him to his parents. It wasn’t known whether the child would face charges.

School officials said he had been part of a group caught on camera trying to pull the same prank last month, according to KATV television station in Little Rock.
