Student pulled off school bus, charged with littering
RAEFORD, N.C. — Charges have been dropped against a Hoke County High School student who was pulled off a school bus in August and charged with littering.

Court records show the charges against Guy Mitchell were dismissed.

Mitchell, 16, said he was swinging a plastic bottle around in the bus as he rode home after school when the  bottle flew out the window.

The bottle caught the attention of a Hoke County deputy who was behind the bus on Rockfish Road. He stopped the bus, got on board and arrested Mitchell after the teen owned up to owning the bottle.
