ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. - According to St. Johns County police, a man took a Snickers bar and threw it at the head of a driver for the Sunshine Bus Company on Wednesday morning.
An argument between a passenger and a driver of a Sunshine Bus turned violent, according to deputies.
Officials said Joel Parker was riding the bus, and as he was about to get off on A1A, he asked the driver if he wanted a Snickers bar.
Police said the driver said no, and that’s when Parker took it and threw it at the drivers head, hitting him.
“Well, I don't think it's very nice," said Sharon Schrader, a visitor. "That guy should've never thrown it at his head."
“It sounds dangerous, it sounds very rude actually,” said Brittany Vandement, a neighbor.
The report said Parker was threatening the driver, and making a disturbance.
Deputies were called and Parker was arrested for battery.
Parker was also issued a trespass warning and told he wouldn’t be allowed to ride the Sunshine Bus again.
Action News contacted the company for comment on the incident. The company said they aren’t able to comment until the investigation is complete.
Parker has a $250 bond.
