The driver of a Coudersport school bus wasn’t hurt when two people allegedly caused a disturbance on Peet Brook Road in Allegany Township. Trooper C. Sebastian said he responded to Muccio Busing Company to interview the 68-year-old driver from Port Allegany. Troopers said in a public information release that “it was discovered that Geromia Schoonover, 39, of Coudersport ran in front of the bus to stop it while was traveling on the roadway.” Geromia and Kylie Schoonover, 33, of Coudersport then allegedly began shouting obscenities at the bus driver. The actions took place while there was a child on the bus. Kylie then is alleged to have contacted the Coudersport School District and threatened to use violence against the driver “if something was not done.” Troopers said Geromia was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct, obstruction of highways, harassment with acts to annoy and pedestrians crossing at other than crosswalks. Kylie was charged with misdemeanor harassment, two counts of disorderly conduct and two summary offenses of harassment. Court action is pending.
