High school boys charged for smoking on bus

SUMMIT COUNTY – Two Summit High School boys were cited by the Summit County Sheriff’s Office with drug-related violations Thursday after a bus driver caught them smoking on a school bus.

A 14-year-old boy was cited for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. A 15-year-old student also was cited for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Three teen-agers – the two boys and a girl – were riding the bus on its regular route from Summit High School to Summit Middle School Thursday afternoon when the driver noticed something was awry. The driver made the three students get off the bus at the middle school, where they waited until a sheriff’s deputy came to question them.

The girl was not cited in the incident.

Summit School Superintendent Wes Smith couldn’t be reached Friday for comment, though he said Thursday the district would take disciplinary action if the evidence against the teen-agers was convincing.

Because the students are minors, their names won’t be released.
