A Barnwell woman was arrested after blocking the path of a school bus.
The bus driver told deputies she made a stop to pick up a child at 7420 Patterson Mill Road March 26, but proceeded on when she saw "no lights or movement." That's when she told deputies that a red car "raced around" the bus, pulled in front of it and slowed to a stop, blocking the road. The bus driver had to pull onto the shoulder of the road in order to turn on Hay Road, according to the incident report.
At the next stop, the bus driver said the child who missed the bus boarded and Louise Denisethal Pinkney approached the bus driver's window. Pinkney then argued with the driver and tried to pull the door open, states the report.
The 33-year-old of 7420 Patterson Mill Rd., Barnwell, was arrested by the Barnwell County Sheriff's Office and charged with interfering with the operation of a school bus.
She was released to the county jail.
