Joyriding kids play demolition derby with Ascension school buses in parking lot
DONALDSONVILLE – Some renegade kids took at least four school buses on a joyride through the parking lot of a westside Ascension Parish high school leaving behind a trail of damage.
Buses were broken into Wednesday night at Donaldsonville High. Kids were able to start the buses and drive them around the parking lot, crashing one into the building. Another appears to have crashed into a vehicle in the parking lot and two others have broken windows.
Damage was still evident Thursday morning. WBRZ obtained a picture that showed a brick wall at the school was smashed.
On Facebook, eyewitnesses posted juveniles may have been driving the buses around the parking lot like a demolition derby and drag race.
No injuries were reported.
The sheriff's office said four juveniles were identified and charged with criminal mischief, criminal trespassing, felony criminal damage to property, three counts of simple burglary, and three counts of unauthorized use of a movable.
School starts next week.
