Man Accused of Jumping on School Bus to Flee


PALESTINE (AP) – Police credit several adults with stopping a fleeing suspect from driving away in an East Texas school bus. Palestine police on Tuesday arrested Cedric Brenard Lewis. About a dozen students were on the stopped bus, which was picking up more youngsters. Nobody was hurt. Lewis was being held Wednesday on charges of aggravated kidnapping, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, public intoxication, criminal mischief and resisting arrest. Anderson County Jail records didn’t list an attorney for Lewis. Bond wasn’t immediately set. Lewis allegedly caused a disturbance at some apartments and was being escorted out by a maintenance worker when he jumped into the bus driver’s empty seat. Sgt. James Muniz says the driver, who’d been assisting a student, helped the maintenance worker and an off-duty corrections worker subdue Lewis.
