Driver accused of letting NC students smoke marijuana on school bus
LANDIS, N.C. — A North Carolina school bus driver is accused of allowing middle school students to smoke marijuana on the bus.
The Salisbury Post reported that Brian Davis Overcash, 30, of Rowan County, is charged with four counts of contributing to the delinquency of minors.
Landis police said Overcash allowed Corriher-Lipe Middle School students to smoke marijuana on Rowan County school bus No. 162 after completing his route Feb. 20.
Several students were allegedly smoking marijuana. The suspect said there have been other times where students smoked marijuana on his bus.
Corriher-Lipe Middle School assistant Principal Matt Krome all bus drivers are required to stop the bus and call 911 if a crime occurs.
Overcash allegedly told authorities that there was “no point” in stopping the bus to call 911 because the students would deny it.
Overcash was charged Friday and placed in the Rowan County Jail under a $1,000 secured bond.
