I believe that was reported a few days ago in the Journal Star, now this report from WMBD-TV, so I'm guessing they're still looking for qualified drivers.

PEORIA--A Peoria District 150 bus driver is arrested after allegedly attacking a student on his bus.

In the story we first brought you, District 150 tells us they are investigating the incident that landed one of their own employees in jail.

51-year-old Philip J. Miller was arrested Friday for battery at the district's bus barn, after the child's mother called police.

The mother says her son, Jeremiah Heron, was on the way home from school on Friday when it happened.

WMBD 31 obtained the police report, it says miller was arrested for hitting a student multiple times in the head with keys, and pushing the student into a seat.

The report also shows Miller became irate after students were being disruptive.

Heron's mother tells us she took her son to the hospital, where doctor's said he suffered a slight concussion..

Now, the family is just looking for answers, saying the incident should never have happened.

"He was gonna hit me with it again, then my sister got up and pushed him off me," says Heron.

"I never got a reason why. I mean, why would he even go that far? What make him so mad that he had to attack my son," asks Heron's mother Tivoonaah Howard.

The Heron kids say they got off the bus at a different stop because they were afraid of Miller.

They are now riding a new route.

The district wouldn't say if Miller is still working, only that it's a personnel matter.
Miller is due in court October 19th.

This behavior all started when cops lost their saps. **** ACLU and attorneys have ruined our nation.

I've been hit with a sap. Nothing else can knock respect into you like a strap of leather filled with lead.

I recently read an article, and I'm sure you can find it online, that school districts in Texas don't deal with disruptive children anymore. They are told to call the police and children as young as 3rd grade have been arrested for disorderly conduct, among other charges, with fee ranging from $100-$1000. Then, when you appear in court, your parents must be with you. If not, absentee parents can be arrested.

I'm sure this pisses the police off, but I'm sure the screwing around, being a jerk, bullying and being a disruptive jackoff has come to a screeching halt. Maybe D150 should do this.

I kinda find it hard to believe that a school bus driver just "goes off" and start punching this kid in the head for no reason. Yes, he should have showed better restraint.

When I was a kid and we acted up on the bus, the driver threatened to pull over. If we kept up, he did pull over, called the principal, who then came and determined the cause of the problem. The offenders were then punished.

I don't recall bus drivers ever hitting us with keys. In fact, on a high school bus, that would be a pretty stupid thing to do and is asking to get f***** up. Violence begets violence.

"Tivoonaah" How the hell do you even pronounce that?
