Survivor tape-creating bus driver “charged with recklessly endangering children.”
A bus driver who desperately wanted to be on Survivor has been “charged with recklessly endangering children,” the AP reports. Maureen Monaghan was trying to make an audition tape for Survivor, and the chief of police said she “encouraged the children to be disorderly on the bus while it was moving. In viewing the tape, there was so much commotion going on, we felt it was a very unsafe situation for her to allow this to happen.” Even worse, “police collected 21 permission slips that some parents signed related to the taping,” showing that parents actually agreed to let their kids be taped.
