FIRST ON 3: School bus driver resigns amid investigation
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A New Hanover County Schools bus driver has resigned amid an investigation.
David Penson submitted his resignation today, district spokeswoman Valita Quattlebaum says, though she cannot say what reason he gave, citing personnel laws.
Penson, who drove a bus for Holly Shelter Middle School and had worked for the school district since March 2006, was suspended with pay pending the outcome of an investigation by the district of some sort of incident. The school district would not say what happened during the incident other than that there was a video of it under review by the district’s attorney.
WWAY has requested a copy of the video, but NHCS must first check with its attorney to see if the video can be released.
