Weston Man Charged With Passing Buses on Sidewalk

WESTON, Conn. — Robert Pritsker of Weston was arrested Sunday after passing five buses on the Weston schools' campus June 2, police said.

The buses had lined up as they always do, and two were blocking the entrance to a parking lot. Pritsker, who had been practicing tennis at Weston Intermediate School, asked one to move so he could get out, police records said. A bus driver said students were boarding and refused to move the bus. Pritsker then used "dirty language" and started screaming and demanding that the bus be moved, police said. The driver told police she felt Pritsker was a threat when he raised his voice and called her profane names.

A second bus driver said that as Pritsker drove past on the sidewalk, the bus driver beeped at him and Pritsker flipped him off. The bus company sent video recordings to the Weston Police Department, which show Pritsker driving on the sidewalk.

Pritsker was charged with second-degree reckless endangerment, risk of injury to a minor, two counts of second-degree breach of peace, reckless driving, five counts of passing a stopped school bus and unsafe movement. He was released after posting $25,000 surety bond.
