A Ward Street man has been summonsed for a wild situation near Copeland Circle on April 3 involving an airport shuttle.

Around 7:30 p.m., the shuttle driver observed a car driving erratically near Copeland Circle. Suddenly, the car hit the curb, went into the guardrail and started spinning. As it spun around, it hit the bus in the front end.

The driver immediately stopped the bus and got out to check on the other driver.

Witnesses said the other driver appeared intoxicated, and the bus driver proceeded to take a picture of the man’s registration. As he did that, the man allegedly assaulted him, got back in the car and tore out the wrong way on Copeland Circle.

Police arrived and, using the registration photo, tried to locate the man at his home, but he wasn’t there.
