Greene County, TN – January 28, 2013 – A 44 year old school bus driver with a history of disciplinary action has been charged after chasing after a repossessor with a school bus.
On Thursday night at about 10:10 pm 44-year old Leslie Calvin Henry allegedly took chase in a full sized Greene County school bus, identified as Bus 77, with some residents according to a report from a representative of T&T Auto Sales named Paul Gray who repossessed a 2003 Saturn from an address on Ragon Hollow Road.
Reportedly, Henry used the bus, which he routinely uses to transport kids to Mosheim Elementary in the chase that went down a narrow, windy back road before ending on Highway 11E.
Reportedly, Henry has been employed with the Greene County Schools as a bus driver on and off since 1996. He has worked steadily as a school bus driver since his last rehire date, in August 2008.
According to a District Representative, during his bus-driving career with the school system, Henry was disciplined in 2010 for three days for verbal “disrespect of students” and another three days for “physically putting a child back in his seat.”
In an incident in 1998, Henry received a letter of reprimand after the school district received a report that he crossed railroad tracks while a train was on the tracks.
Henry now faces charges of charged with felony reckless endangerment.
