BEND, Ore. (AP) – A Redmond man is accused of trying to break into a Head Start school bus with 5-year-old students inside, and threatening the driver.

The Bulletin reports the driver called 911 Monday afternoon saying someone had intentionally blocked his school bus with a vehicle in Redmond and that the person was trying to get inside the bus.

Redmond police say the driver locked the door preventing the man from entering. Police say when the man walked away he made a gesture with his hands simulating shooting the driver.

Officers arrested 32-year-old William Gass Jr. on suspicion of disorderly conduct and menacing.

Police say no one was injured during the incident, which officers determined was due to a traffic dispute that began in connection with hazardous road conditions.

It wasn’t immediately known if Gass had obtained a lawyer.
