Teen Arrested For Spitting On Bus Driver

The information in this report is from the Solon Police. An arrest does not mean a conviction.

A 15-year-old Solon teen was arrested after an RTA bus driver said he spit on her.

A officer discovered the situation when he saw the RTA bus parked on Aurora Road near Melbury Street. He saw a teenager running down the street being pursued by a female bus driver.

The police stopped the boy and found out from the bus driver that she had asked him to turn his music down while on the bus. The teenager refused and cursed at the bus driver.

Then the bus driver said the teenager spit on her and left.

Police say the teenager admitted to cursing at the driver but said he spit on the ground, not at the driver. But a witness coroborated the driver's story.

The teenager was taken to Solon jail and later released to his mother. He will be referred to juvenile court for charge of disorderly conduct.

That kid is lucky that it was not me he spit on. I would be the one in jail. Mother of the this kid. When he waken that next morning he would have found his teeth on the floor. That is so nasty to spit on someone.

The new Solon.....people have to prepare for the storm...sex in the schools...kids with parents that don't give a shit about them.....and these kids mix with yours.....talk to your kids.....don't let them become lambs to the slaughter. The children need to have adults they can trust and talk to. Otherwise, Solon will become another casulty of the spreading, urban menace.

Guess what this has been problems in Solon for years. Because it is a suburan area a lot of things that happen in the school was not publicized because most of the kids came from outstanding upscale homes. A lot of things were kept out of the public eye. We need to c how kids are really raised up. I guaranteed that this isn' t the first time this kid has spit on an adult. I bet u he has spit on his parents and siblings. Charity starts at home, it does not matter of u are urban or not, it is how u raised your child. I was a nanny for years I saw first hand how most of these Solon kids are raised. Like I say urban menace has nothing to do in how u raised your child. Drugs and abortions like no other has been rapid in solon for yrs. You are not going to hear about it because it is isolated and tight lip. I personnally lived it and worked in it...Do u know how many parents paid their kids way out of trouble I have a list. You need to look at the movie the Help it will set u straight. And that what I was the HELP.....The young men and women that I watch they are in their 30's and late 20's. This is nothing new to Solon

Yes, it is swept under the rug. I live in Solon and have 2 children through the system. I know about the rapes, violence, drugs, etc. Yes, there are troubled kids from ridiculous familes where the parents are in another world. I also lived in the apartment complex in Solon, a large one. I saw kids being dropped off in the morning to ride the school bus that picked up at the apartments. I saw a dozen kids leaving one bedroom apartments to get on the school bus. Solon schools do not do adequate checks on who lives in Solon. A friends daughter was a victim of one of these ghetto kids. Because the kid was under 18, most of the charges were dismissed. Probation was granted even though there were multiple drug convictions, some right in the school. The reality is, you cannot count on good parents to make everything ok. While you're waiting for parents to grow up, their kids are doing damage to the kids that have good parents and follow their educations in the Solon schools. If the school system does not get tough, we are heading down the path of Shaker Hts schools. Once a ranked school system, now not even relevant.

Aren't you a prize. You'd knock the kids teeth out as a solution to his behavior? Well gee whiz, Gerrie Smith, why not break his arms & legs while you're at it? That should teach the nasty 15 yr old a lesson. My god, you're a bonafide wacko. A wacko who, professed to being a nanny to Solon children for years. Geez almighty, how'd you ever secure the position of Nanny, with such a twisted mind? It's no bloody wonder some young people of Solon act disrespectful & spit on adults, they had you, good old nanny dearest, as a role model.
