Sharpsburg police officer Travis Parker was insulted by a boy who made faces and allegedly an obscene gesture from a school bus at him. Most drivers mumble about “kids today” but Parker pulled over the bus, allegedly threatened the driver, and arrested the kid for disturbing the peace. He then returned for other kids who joined the taunting as he put teenager in his cruiser. He has since resigned over stress related to the incident.
Dessie Lewis, 18, was charged with disturbing the peace — a charge later dropped. His brother Derrick Lewis, 15, was also removed from the bus.
At one point Parker is accused of pointing at his gun when the bus driver asked what was happening — though that is an account from one of the children.
