An 18-year-old Middlebury man told police he allegedly stole a school bus from a South Main Street lot early Saturday because his fans wanted him to do it, and that he got the idea from social media, the Waterbury Republican-American reported. 

Police said Kevin Monagan, 18, of Pine Hollow Drive, is accused of taking a school bus from the Student Transportation of America’s bus lot, the paper reports. 

He allegedly drove it around town before being pulled over by police around 2 a.m. At the time, he was driving the bus with its headlights off but the hazard lights were on, the Republican-American reports. 

Monagan was charged with larceny and trespassing and was held on $25,000 bond.

According to the Waterbury Republican, the police sergeant who pulled the kid over asked him if he owned the bus?? Are you serious?? "Hey, kid...you own that thing?" "Ah...yes officer...it's mine." "OK kid..better get home. Kinda late to be out." Unbelievable.

There are many lessons to be learned here. I hope those involved did. Addresses, in my opinion, are not necessary.

yep, another glowing example of the degenerate side of our society. these idiots can't even come up with original concepts to amuse their friends, (and us!). all that emphasis on 'critical thinking' in our education system seems to have been off the mark. however, at least some of these people have learned how to read and communicate (even bad ideas) to each other, that might be considered a step in the positive.
