MT. PLEASANT, Tenn. (WKRN) – Maury County authorities are reviewing surveillance video in an effort to discover who vandalized a Maury County school bus over the weekend.

Investigators say vandals busted out several of the bus windows, including the windshield, early Sunday morning while it was parked at Mt. Pleasant High School.

John Gibson, a retired principal was walking near the school Sunday when he noticed broken glass on the ground.

Gibson reported the incident to the Mt. Pleasant Police Department. The Maury County Sheriff’s Department was also called to investigate because the school is located on county property.

Officers are reviewing surveillance video and tell News 2 it shows three people, possibly kids, using a baseball bat to bust out the windows.

School officials tell News 2 the bus transports students to more than one school.

Classes were out Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day but on Tuesday the district was able to find a replacement bus to get kids to and from school safely.

There is not an estimate yet on how much the damage will cost the district.
