Charleston County deputies arrested two teens accused of causing a disruption as they investigated reports of students smoking weed on a school bus.
Errol Chisolm Jr., 17, of Dorchester Road, and Rashawn Bradley, 17, of Houston Street, were charged with interference with the operation of a school bus in connection with the incident, Sheriff’s Maj. Jim Brady said.
Deputies responded to the area of 1604 Sam Rittenberg Boulevard after a bus driver reported that two students were smoking marijuana, Brady said.
The bus driver directed deputies to the back of the bus, where the incident occurred.
Deputies attempted to speak with Errol Chisolm Jr., 17, of Dorchester Road, but they said the teen became agitated when questioned.
Chisolm began yelling and cursing at deputies, prompting other students to join in on what Brady said was becoming a hostile environment.
Chisolom resisted as deputies escorted him off of the bus, Brady said.
The bus driver yelled for deputies to come back on the bus when a second student, Rashawn Bradley, 17, of Houston Street, also caused a disturbance, Brady said.
Deputies searched the bus, but Brady said no drugs were found. The investigation is ongoing, he said.
Both students were held at the Charleston County jail on Tuesday pending a bond hearing scheduled for 9 a.m. today, Brady said.
