Police: Drunken man rides school bus to get closer to home
AMBLER, Pa. (AP) — Police say a 20-year-old intoxicated man got on a school bus hoping to be dropped off closer to his home but instead rode to a suburban Philadelphia high school and went inside.
Lower Gwynedd Police say a student reported an unknown man at 7:25 a.m. Friday. The man was dropped off and entered Wissahickon Senior High School.
About 10 minutes later, he was confronted by the school’s resource officer and administrators. The man ran outside but was apprehended following a brief foot chase.
Dominic Herder faces trespassing and public drunkenness charges. He’s being arraigned Friday. Police did not have attorney information for him.
Lieutenant Michael Gargan said the man looked like a student so the driver didn’t question him; however, the school is discussing additional safety measures.
