WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- WWAY has learned a bus driver and bus monitor who kicked two students off the bus at 8th and Wooster Streets in Wilmington last month have been arrested. The New Hanover County School Board fired driver Doug Farrow and monitor Angela McIntyre yesterday after deputies charged Farrow with contributing to the deliquency of a minor and neglect and McIntyre with contributing to the deliquency of a minor.
The parents of a 13-year-old girl who was kicked off the bus told WWAY last week the monitor told the driver to stop the bus because their daughter and another student were making fun of the monitor. The children then had to walk more than a mile home.
Farrow had worked for the school district since Sept. 13, 2002. The district hired McIntyre in March 2000. Farrow and McIntyre are both out of jail. They are each schedule to be in court May 25.
