Troopers: Man purposely rams bus, attempts to board

Posted on January 22, 2014

CRESWELL, Ore. — A man was arrested last week after Oregon State Police troopers say he intentionally rammed a school bus, dropped his pants and then tried to get on board the bus while armed with a gun, according to a story on KATU.com.  

There were no students on the bus during last Tuesday’s incident, and the driver kept the bus’ door closed to prevent Jonathan Modesitt from entering.

When officers arrived at the scene, Modesitt drove off in his car and then ultimately went through a fence and landed in a creek. He faces driving under the influence of intoxicants, hit-and-run and gun charges.
