A 16-year-old motorist was arrested Monday afternoon for allegedly stopping too late for a school bus on Beattie Avenue.
Police said Nicholes F. Palisano of Pine Street stopped near the front end of the school bus he was following at 3:25 p.m. He then backed up to wait for children to cross the street at Beattie and Regent Street.
"After seeing the patrol," the police report said, Palisano "made an immediate right turn onto Regent Street in an attempt to elude police, as he was an unlicensed operator."
He was charged with unlicensed operation, failing to stop for a school bus and failing to signal a turn. Bail was set at $100. The car was towed away.
