Local Bus Driver Makes Court Appearance

We have an update regarding a bus driver, who allegedly pushed an autistic 6-year-old student off a school bus in Cambria County.

Bus driver Christopher Ilg appeared in court this morning.

Ilg was charged with simple assault and harassment after an incident at Greater Johnstown Elementary School in March.

Police say he wouldn’t allow the boy on the bus over reported behavior issues.

They say Ilg became argumentative and caused the student to fall backwards. But the boy was caught by a witness.

The judge found that there was not enough evidence to keep the simple assault charge Ilg faced. But found him guilty on summary harassment and ordered him to pay a $300 fine.
