STAFFORD, Va. — A student could be facing charges for allegedly throwing water bottles from a Stafford County School bus and damaging a passing school bus, according to deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies responded to Poplar Road, off of Highway 17, on Wednesday around 4:39 p.m. after receiving a call about a disturbance. At the scene, a deputy learned that a juvenile student had thrown a water bottle from the window of his school bus as it passed another bus on the same road.
