Man charged with passing school bus|

A Walton man caught through a surveillance camera was arrested after a passing a stopped school bus, Delaware County deputies said.

Deputies received a complaint that a motorist disregarded safety devices and passed a stopped Walton Central School District bus on Oct. 8. The bus was stopped, had emergency lights on, had activated its stop-arm and was discharging students when the vehicle passed, a media release said.

A review of a video surveillance recording made from the bus identified the vehicle and its operator, the release said.
