WATCH: Driver refuses to let rowdy kids off school bus

Parents called 911 after a school bus driver kept students inside the bus after the children got rowdy.

It happened last Tuesday when a bus driver said a group of children from Dysart Elementary School were unruly on his bus, and he wouldn't let them out at the bus stop until they behaved.

"The longer we stay here, the more your parents are going to be getting upset, but not at me, they're going to be getting upset with you. Because it's your fault you're not getting off the bus," said the driver.

Some parents waiting at the stop became upset and started knocking on the door. One dad tried to pry it open to get his children.

"See, your parents are getting upset. You break that door, you're going to be buying a new one! Your kid will get off the bus when I am done with 'em," said the driver.

"Let the kids off the bus," replied the parent.

"I'm not letting anyone off until you listen to what I have to say," said the driver.

Some of the kids started to get upset, crying and asking for their parents.

"Please get us out, help us, help!" said one of the children. "I want my daddy. I want my daddy," said another child.

As the situation escalated, the driver decided to take off and head back to the school. Parents called the police, and officers met the bus at the school, where the kids were finally released.

The school district has placed the driver on leave during the investigation.
