Edinburgh police investigate egging of BCSC school bus

The Edinburgh Police Department is reviewing video recordings after eggs were thrown into the interior of a school bus during a middle school basketball game.

Edinburgh Police Chief David Mann said police were called to the Edinburgh High School parking lot at 9:06 p.m. Tuesday on a vandalism report.

A Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. bus driver told police that the entry doors were ajar and eggs were thrown onto the bus steps, at the interior front windshield, on the driver’s seat and on the bus control panel.

Police are checking security camera footage to determine the culprits, Mann said. Nothing was stolen from the bus, he said.

The bus had taken Northside Middle School students in Columbus to Edinburgh for a middle school basketball game.

The bus is operating normally, although transportation officials are keeping an eye on the controls to make sure they weren’t affected by the egg splatter.

“Our biggest concern was that the egg would get into the control panel and damage it,” Wetherald said. “We were very disappointed it happened.”
