— The Wake County school system has reassigned a bus driver accused of dropping off a 6-year-old at the wrong stop.

Porsha Garrett claimed her son, Omarion, wandered around for at least 30 minutes before a stranger brought him home.

It happened Sept. 4 after his first day of school at Stough Elementary on Edwards Mill Road in Raleigh.

Similar incidents happened earlier in the year at other Wake County schools. Since then, additional safety procedures have been implemented.
