NORCROSS -- A Norcross woman was jailed this week for allegedly heading off a school bus with her car, forcing herself aboard and removing her son.
Sheriff's Deputies arrested Stephanie Mims, 30, on warrants Tuesday charging her with disruption of a public school and reckless conduct, both misdemeanors.
The incident happened the morning of Aug. 17 and involved a Summerour Middle School bus, according to a school police report.
An angry Mims illegally passed the bus and intentionally swerved back "in such close proximity to the front of the bus that the bus driver had to take evasive action," an arrest warrant states.
At the intersection of Mitchell Road and Ballard Way in Norcross, Sims parked and blocked the bus in traffic, forcibly opened the secured bus door, pulled her son off the bus and walked him to her car, the warrant states.
The bus driver reported the incident to a supervisor two days later.
Mims posted $2,600 bond and was released from the Gwinnett County Jail on Wednesday.
