For those of you who missed the story, a Cleveland Metropolitan School District bus driver got fed up with a female driver who was in the habit of using the sidewalk to pass his stopped school bus as he loaded and unloaded kids. The driver of the bus, Uriah Herron, contacted police who then set up a trap to nab the woman.
The driver of the vehicle seen in the video was 32-year-old Shena Hardin. After being caught red-handed, she was charged with not stopping for a school bus and reckless operation, charges she plead not guilty to in September.
