Teen takes school bus on joy ride


ROSEVILLE, Minn. (WXOW) -- A Twin Cities teenager jumped behind the wheel of a school bus and took it on a dangerous joy ride early Monday morning.

Police in Roseville say a 14-year-old boy spotted a school bus sitting outside a Holiday Gas Station.

The keys were left inside while the driver was on break.

Police say the boy hopped in and started driving it back to the bus headquarters a few blocks away. But when he heard over the radio the bus was reported stolen, he drove off and eventually crashed it into a nearby gas pump.

The bus and pump suffered damage.

No one was hurt but the boy faces auto theft charges.
