WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A bus driver for the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools resigned Thursday, after engaging in an alleged shouting match with another driver during the morning bus route.

Theo Helm, district spokesman, said the driver had been driving for the district for three years.

The driver, Ross Mecham, resigned Thursday morning without explanation, Helm said Friday night.

The incident, partially caught on cell phone video by a witness, occurred Thursday morning after the driver had made one stop.

Helm said the district did not know if there were any students on the bus at the time.
