INDIANAPOLIS — “The wheels on the bus go round and round…” This week’s “I F*cked Up A Good Job Award” goes to 27-year-old bus driver Joandrea McAtee who was arrested and fired on Friday for, get this: letting three students (ages 11, 13 and 17) drive her bus. The lax incident went down in Valparaiso, Indiana and the entire ordeal was captured on video. Joandrea allegedly allowed a trio of students to take turns steering the wheel while traveling down Lourdes Street.

Joandrea reportedly stood over them to convey a Driver’s Ed tutorial. Once word got out, police threw her irresponsible ass in jail. “An investigation was immediately started and no one was injured or harmed,” Porter County Sheriff David Reynolds said in a statement.

“The Sheriff’s Office and the Porter Township School Corporation takes safety and security of every student seriously and every parent must understand that this case will be investigated thoroughly.” 

Joandrea was fired by First Student — a scholastic transportation company.

  7. Those children are too young to drive, let alone a dirtbike!

  8. sounds about black

  9. Charged/terminated ?? That’s it ??? She’s not in custody undergoing a serious psych evaluation? If she’s at large what was the bail set at? Interesting they don’t come up with these very pertinent facts. Something tells me she’s free walking amongst the community. Otherwise, it would have stated that she wasn’t. Seriously wouldn’t doubt it. If so, that local justice department should be completely ashamed of themselves.This could have been a complete disaster, the fact that it wasn’t doesn’t mean she shouldn’t be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, regardless of no priors considering the circumstances. Her intent is completely immaterial. PSYCH EVAL !!!

  19. Anyone can drive a bus if not why are they paid $8 an hour? The kid was getting a lesson. Cameras everywhere..never do anything ever..jerk offs beware

    not buying-it! Did the child move the bus, then she wasn’t teaching her how to drive!? I believe she was trying to let the little girl feel special, maybe she was being bullied and the bus-driver wanted to be nice to her! Yeah let’s just jump to the worst case scenario!! Side eye!😒

  21. Lick My Musket Balls

    It was nice for the kids, but it’s a major safety violation, and especially for the 11 and 13 year olds to drive. The 17 I have less worry about. Still wrong, she should know better.

  22. she did a pretty good job! these kids didn’t hit nobody! lmfao She should teach driver’s ed afterwards
