    BOSTON (CBS) – A Boston school bus driver is on paid administrative leave after a video was posted on Facebook showing a bus moving a short distance with a man hanging onto the front mirror.

    The incident took place Thursday just before 5 p.m. on Woodbole Ave. in Mattapan.

    The incident stemmed from a dispute over where the bus driver was supposed to stop to drop students off.

    When the bus did not stop where parents felt it should, James “Mikey” Burdett, who was waiting to pick up his daughter, grabbed onto the mirror and began shouting “Stop the bus this is my daughter’s stop.”

    The bus driver continued driving with Burdett swinging from the mirror.

    “When I tried to talk to him he wouldn’t open the door so I stood in front of the bus and put my hand out and said ‘just listen I want my daughter that’s it,’” Burdett says. “And I said it the first time he just pressed on the gas.”

    Burdett says he had no choice but to hang on.

    “So I braced myself, I said ‘can I just please have my daughter’ because his driver’s window was open,” Burdett says. “As soon as I said it again he then proceeded to go again and accelerate. Hit my leg and I was getting dragged pretty much on the window all the way down, hanging onto the mirror for dear life.”

    Jumping up with his feet near the bumper he says, to avoid getting run over. His daughter Janalyz was in his sight.

    “She was screaming to the bus she was sitting behind the bus driver like ‘please stop, that’s my dad, that’s my daddy,’” Burdett says.

    The police report tells another story. The driver, who’s been placed on paid leave, told officers the father “started punching on the glass on the door” and that he didn’t stop because “he felt as though it was not a safe environment for the children on the bus and himself.”

    The bus driver showed police a list of the scheduled bus stops to review, confirming that he had been informed not to stop at the intersection. Instead, the bus driver says he was told to stop closer to Morton Street.

    Boston Public Schools issued a statement on the incident and said the bus driver has been placed on paid administrative leave during an investigation.

    The Boston Public Schools does not tolerate any kind of behavior that places people’s lives in danger or compromises pubic safety. Transdev, the contractor that operates all BPS school buses, immediately removed the driver from service and placed him on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation. BPS is cooperating fully with the Boston Police Department, which responded to the incident and is currently investigating the matter.

    Burdett went to the hospital with a sore leg.

    In the olden days bus drivers used to stop the bus and slap kids on the head for misbehaving.

    Did you read about the part where the driver told a different story? The dad was punching the door. They're under pretty strict rules about where to drop off. The driver didn't think it was safe to drop kids off with the guy going nuts. I find it hard to believe he was being so polite when he also resorted to grabbing the mirror to try to get the driver to stop. If the parent had a problem with the stop area, he should have called the transportation department and talked to them, not the driver, who is just doing what he's told.

    The worst we had was a woman who stopped the bus by a park and wouldn't let any of us off because we were being rude. We sat there for about an hour. Not really too bad but I think people might sue today.

    As a parent, reading the article I side with the driver. Fuck that dad. Who knows if he's a disgruntled father, nutcase, or just asshole. He's not getting on the bus, the kids not getting off at an unscheduled stop, so get the fuck out of the way.

    The driver has the responsibility of ALL the children to consider.

    Imagine the story going the other way. Angry father storms stops bus, forces his way on and removes his young daughter.

    The driver would be crucified for letting some asshole onto the bus.

    I love the excuse, “When I tried to talk to him he wouldn’t open the door so I stood in front of the bus and put my hand out...’” Burdett says.

    Here's an idea, cocksucker. Don't stand in front of a bus.

    I looked
    the corner where the video was shot was maybe a 3-5 min walk from where the new bust stop was

    the most pathetic thing about this is that I took the time to do this

    I agree. I'd never be a bus driver. Bad enough you put up with shit from kids, but to have parents bothering you is just too much.
