CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Charleston Police officers arrested a West Side man on multiple misdemeanor charges after he crashed into a school bus just after 3 p.m. Thursday.
Robert Pryor, 52, of Charleston, was charged with simple possession of marijuana, receiving or transferring stolen goods and simple possession of a controlled substance.
Magistrate Brent Hall set Pryor's bond at $1,500 cash.
Pryor was driving near 4th Avenue and Stockton Street on the West Side when he crashed into the bus, according to a police report filed in Kanawha Magistrate Court.
None of the children on the bus was injured, a dispatcher with Kanawha County Metro 911 said.
Patrolman D. Fields arrived on the scene and saw Pryor being examined by Charleston Fire Department paramedics, according to the arrest report.
Fields allegedly discovered that Pryor had a large pocketknife in his pants pocket.
The officer told Pryor he was not permitted to take the knife with him in the ambulance. Officers said they recognized Pryor from a previous drug arrest, according to the report.
Fields allegedly asked Pryor if he had anything else that "officers should know about," according to the arrest report. Pryor said he didn't.
