Joandrea McAtee was charged with felony neglect of a dependent. She's an Indiana school bus driver, and police say she let her middle school passengers drive the bus with other students on board. And they drove to the next stop where children were waiting to get on. And it was caught on video by one of the kids on the bus.

Eyewitnesses say the driver let three students drive. They were aged 11, 13, and 17 years old. They were driving the streets of Valparaiso, Indiana.

In a statement, Porter County Sheriff David Reynolds said:

“An investigation was immediately started and no one was injured or harmed. 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."

In one of the videos, it sounds like McAtee is saying, “Don’t you tell no other adults.".
