Bus-driver imposter gets probation
A 19-year-old D.C. man who took a Metrobus from a Metro garage last summer and drove passengers through the city, was placed Monday on 18 months probation and ordered to perform 200 hours of community service.
William Jackson had pleaded guilty in September to a charge of unauthorized use of a vehicle in connection with the July 9 incident, in which he wore a Metrobus driver’s uniform when he took the bus from the Bladensburg garage, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.
The ride, in which he picked up and dropped off passengers, ended when the bus collided with a tree. In addition to community service, probation is to include counseling, the prosecutor’s office said.
