WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

Two teens were charged Tuesday morning after authorities said they became unruly against a school bus driver and deputies who were investigating a report of marijuana on the bus.

Major Jim Brady with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to the 1600 block of Sam Rittenberg Boulevard in West Ashley just before 7 a.m. after receiving reports of two students smoking marijuana on the bus.

After deputies arrived and met with the bus driver, Brady said they were directed to the rear of the bus to speak with 17-year-old Errol Chisolm Jr., of North Charleston. Brady said Chisolm was agitated and began to act aggressively towards the deputy and "resisted being detained."

While deputies were dealing with Chisolm outside the bus, Brady said the bus driver told them there was another issue on the bus.

The driver told them another North Charleston teen, 17-year-old Rashawn Bradley, tried to leave the bus and began to curse at the driver when he was told to take his seat.

Brady said Bradley then displayed resistance to the deputies as they attempted to escort him from the bus due to fellow riders creating "a hostile environment."

As a result, both Chisolm and Bradley were arrested and charged with interference with the operation of a school bus.

They were taken to the Charleston County Detention Center.

A subsequent search of the bus did not locate any marijuana or contraband, Brady added.

Both teens are scheduled to appear in court for a bond hearing Wednesday morning.
