Wrong Way: School Bus Joyride Ends with Florida Woman in Handcuffs
We’ve got a wild Florida Woman story today! This girl is a true road rebel! Meet Leah Laplaca, she’s taking the concept of a joyride to a whole new level. Look out, Fast and Furious, because she’s cruising down the highway in a bright yellow school bus!
What’s the big deal, you ask? Well, here’s where it gets spicy. According to Fox 35, Leah wasn’t just driving any old bus. It was unregistered. No license plate, no nothing!
Our daring diva was pulled over by a vigilant deputy who must’ve thought, “That bus looks suspiciously un-busy.” And guess what? It was! No license plate in sight, just Leah Laplaca and her dreams of being the coolest school bus driver in town.
School Bus Busted:
Now, Leah might not have had her driver’s license, but she did have a valid Florida ID card. You know, for those moments when you want to identify yourself but not actually drive legally. Her driver’s license took a permanent vacation after she ignored a few too many traffic tickets. Classic Leah move.
Leah told the deputies she didn’t know her license was suspended, and then in a masterstroke of storytelling, she claimed she was in Florida to fix her license. She’s taking the school bus industry by storm, one law at a time.
And in case you were wondering, this wasn’t even a Marion County school bus. Leah had her sights set on something bigger, something bolder. She wanted the unregistered school bus experience, and by golly, she got it!
So, where is our modern-day Bonnie (without Clyde) now? Leah Laplaca is enjoying the hospitality of the Marion County Jail with a bond of $1,500. It looks like her dreams of becoming the queen of school buses will have to wait. But hey, at least she’s got a captive audience now!
